What a group(!) showed up for my launch as a speaker on my favorite topic: writing and editing. Twenty-seven of us crammed into the back of the Buddhamouse on Yale Avenue and tackled the important stuff: ideas, creativity, and what agents and publishers really want. The heat didn’t matter, you could have heard a pin drop the whole two hours.
I am not a teacher. I have no credentials. I am a seasoned, published writer and book editor who knows her stuff. I have knowledge that can light the way for others. So I talked about what I love and what I know. They responded! Ages ranged from early twenties to 73, men and women, diverse ethnicities. Everyone bonded in the same spirit. Questions flew, pens scribbled. It was a magical night, and they want me back. THANK YOU Coffee House Writers Group.
