Join EPIC and the Edmonds Literary Series on Thursday, September 13, for a workshop on "Writing Your Story." Marcia Woodard and Jessica Star Rocker will discuss turning nonfiction narratives into essays and books. Bring paper and pen, and you may want to arrive at the Edmonds Library a few minutes before the start time of 6:30 p.m. FREE.
Now that EPIC's wildly successful first season has wrapped-up, let's look to the future. One model is the Ballard Writers Collective, which brings together community authors for live open mic events and online book marketing. From their site, clicking on a book takes you to the local book store -- wouldn't it be great to do this with the Edmonds Bookshop?
Let us know what you would like to see for the future. We have some great literary events planned for the fall, including an evening with Kathleen Flenniken, Washington State Poet Laureate, and the Monday morning writing group, which starts back up on September 17. Enjoy summer and prepare for a busy, literary season!
Today's EPIC Writing Group tacked wind to sails, storms and razor blades. Our featured guest was Emily Hill of AV Harrison Publishing -- thank you, Emily! I am certain we shall see many of our group published (traditional, micro and indie) soon.
We will not meet on May 28, so for June 4, bring your five metaphors from other people's work, and five of your own metaphors. Our last group is June 11.
Have a wonderful Memorial week! -- Janette
