AshEdit—News About Books & Writers

Author’s Shop Talk in Claremont, CA

Filed under: Uncategorized — ashedit @ 9:10 am

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.

L-R Rick Stepp-Bolling, co-ordinator extraordinaire, me, Christine Marie Bryant, the brains and passion behind Coffee House Writers Group.

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.
