September events at WriterHouse

After a lazy summer, WriterHouse is ramping up the events, classes, and seminars:

Tomorrow’s (Saturday, September 17) seminar still has space. Even if you haven’t yet registered, come in the morning and register before class.

Get Your Short Story or Essay Published

If you’ve written an essay or short story and want advice on where and how to submit it for publication, come to tomorrow’s seminar from 9am-1pm. Instructor Clifford Garstang will identify resources and techniques for conducting market research and classifying magazines, discuss formatting, cover letters, contests, submission strategies, the perils of simultaneous submission, keeping adequate records, and dealing with rejection. Bring along a draft cover letter for critique along with the first page of a submission. Cost: $55 members, $60 nonmembers.

Sunday afternoon at 2pm, join us for a chat with the author of the short story collection BEFORE YOU SUFFOCATE YOUR OWN FOOL SELF, Danielle Evans, recipient of the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize “To a fiction writer whose debut work, published in 2010, represents distinguished literary achievement and suggests great promise.” From the Booklist review of her collection: “Evans’ first collection of short stories deals thoughtfully and incisively with considerations of class, race, and coming-of-age.” WriterHouse member Jocelyn Johnson will be host and moderator for the event. Free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Thursday evening at 7pm, come to hear children’s author Meg Medina who will discuss her latest book TIA ISA WANTS A CAR, and how she incorporates her Latina heritage into her work.
