A New Program in the Treasure Valley Solicits Writers
If you’re a writer, you might find it difficult to get your work into potential readers’ hands (and ears). Writers Read, a program in Star, addresses the problem by giving writers a chance to read their work in public.
Your participation will encourage the organizers to continue!
More about it
Every month we’ll meet, featuring up to four authors per event. Participants can read anything they’re working on:
Writers Read organizer Tina Johnson is looking for writers to read at upcoming events in January, February, and March. “We’re inviting writers with all levels of experience across the Treasure Valley and beyond. “We’re excited to hear from teen as well as adult writers,” she said.
Be the audience
The program also seeks audience members. “It’s a great event for listeners as well,” Johnson said. The program lasts about an hour and includes time to chat with authors around the refreshment table.
If you have any questions, contact Tina Johnson at: email@example.com To sift out spam, please use this subject line — Writers Read Firstname Lastname — for example, Writers Read Jane Smith
As they introduce themselves on their website: “Since 1982 the Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest has challenged participants to write an atrocious opening sentence to the worst novel never written. Our whimsical literary competition honors Sir Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, whose 1830 novel Paul Clifford begins with ‘It was a dark and stormy night’.”
