Luke is having his book launch party for “No Common War” at Porter Square Books on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.
April 10: I enjoyed the professional reading/ agent reviews of randomly selected manuscripts at tonight’s Mystery Writers of America New England Chapter at the Brookline Public Library.
After I read my original children’s story, “Ashanti’s Ham Radio Saves the Day” to the 3rd grade class at St. Columbkille last month, several of the kids wanted to do the illustration for a front cover. Here is one of the more talented drawings:
I’m attending the Muse and the Marketplace writing conference at the Park Plaza in Boston at the beginning of April. The Muse is billed as “the number one writing conference in North America” with over 140 well-known authors and “more than 800 people on some 100 panels.”
I wanted to put in a plug for GrubStreet. From their website:
“GrubStreet is one of the nation’s leading creative writing centers. We believe that narrative transforms lives, builds bridges, and produces empathy. By rigorously developing voices of every type and talent and by removing barriers to entry, GrubStreet fosters the creation of meaningful stories and ensures that excellent writing remains vital and relevant.”
I’ve attended a few of their free workshops in the past. I finally decided this week to become a member.
