March 29 – Literary Salon (Denver)
In the fashion of the great literary salons of the 18th and 19th centuries, the Boulder Writers’ Workshop hosts a lively discussion about writing and publishing twice each month. Members talk about their writing successes and challenges, solicit advice, share their experiences and keep each other up-to-date on trends. Our topics range widely–covering the art, psychology, spirituality, business and craft of writing and publishing. All genres, abilities and experience levels are welcome.
Our group consists of published and newbie authors. Writing Coach Lori DeBoer will guide the discussion and answer questions. During our previous get together, our topics included hiring a ghost writer (or not), working with unscrupulous agents and sales after self-publishing. Bobbie Louise Hawkins talked about doing the work of writing, Aden Jamison shared his secret for finishing his book (visit the Writers of the Front Range Blog for the full story), Judy Rose talked about her experiences with agents and Susan Osborn shared her latest projects. We were all in stitches with first-timer Ken Matthew’s tale of being bitten by a coyote by Boulder Creek.
Barnes & Noble in Westminster has agreed to be our host. Please do them a good turn by purchasing a drink or a book.
