We have published the first two flash memoir entries in our newly launched journal, by Laura Elizabeth Nelson and Patricia Lee Lewis. Please take a look! We will be posting more soon.
We are now accepting registrations for this year’s WriteAngles conference.
We are planning to open registration by 9:00 a.m. at the latest, perhaps a little earlier if possible. You will also be able to pay online using PayPal if that is the form of payment you prefer. We will also accept checks.
We will also be introducing the WriteAngles Journal tomorrow.
Congratulations to WriteAngles 2015 panelist Cathi Hanauer on the publication of her new anthology, THE BITCH IS BACK: OLDER, WISER, AND (GETTING) HAPPIER, a follow-up to her previous book THE BITCH IN THE HOUSE: 26 WOMEN TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT SEX, SOLITUDE, WORK, MOTHERHOOD, AND MARRIAGE. Hanauer will be at Broadside Bookshop, in Northampton, on Wednesday, September 28 (7 pm), with contributors Julianna Baggott, Erin White, and Kathy Thomas, and at Odyssey Books, in South Hadley, on Thursday, October 6 (also at 7 pm), again with Julianna. For more details, check Hanauer’s website.
We expect registration to begin on or around Sept. 12. Please sign up for our blog posts to stay updated. You will receive important announcements in your email.
We have five agents scheduled for the conference this year, which means that more of you will be able to meet with one of them to discuss your project. Thanks to Lee for working so hard to make it happen!
We are extremely pleased to announce our keynote speakers for this year’s conference. Lisa Papademetriou, author of middle-school and young adult novels, will speak in the morning plenary and Carole DeSanti, author and Vice President, Executive Editor at Viking Penguin will speak after lunch.
