What's coming up...
What follows are the events upcoming, known and projected that might be of interest to my readers. If not, by all means, skim past to things that actually are. Further down, you’ll find a kind of historical collage of things of at least hypothetical literary interest that did happen, at some point. If history repeats itself (or as someone once quipped, at least rhymes, it may be of interest to someone.
I’ll make a concerted effort to keep this updated. People who know me well are likely to suggest you not hold your breath, but…best of intentions, anyway. What’s that line? Life’s what happens while you’re making other plans?
Thursday, July 12 & 26 @ 6:30 PM. Advanced Fiction Group.
The the semi-monthly meeting of the critique group I sponsor. If you’re a writer, would-be author or someone with a manuscript you’d like help cleaning up, the AFG can help. We try to keep the group small, but we’re ready to consider starting a second group that meets at the same time/place, but functions semi-autonomously, working toward the same goals and under the same standards.
If you’re interested, go to the Advanced Fiction Group on Meet-Up and request to join.
July 21, 10:00-1:00 PM. Southern California Writers’ Association monthly meeting. If you’re an author, in SoCal and you haven’t joined yet, now’s a good time. This month, Baron Birtcher LA Times bestselling author of Roadhouse Blues, Ruby Tuesday and Angels Fall will be speaking on creating suspense and delivering the unexpected.
April 24, 7:00-10;00 PM. Lit-Up-A Conversation with Orange County readers and writers.
Hosted by Maddie Margarita, it’s a great opportunity to listen to local writers read their own work and to ask the kinds of questions of authors you’ve always wanted to ask.
