It's been awhile since I last posted. Things are busy here these days (in a good way). In a couple weeks our new director, Charlie Jensen, will arrive. We're all looking forward to that.
Today I'd just like to announce some recent Writer's Center success stories--members or instructors whose work has either been just published or is forthcoming.
Instructor Nani Power's Feed The Hungry: A Memoir with Recipes was published by The Free Press. Carolyn See reviewed it favorably in the Post recently.
Instructor Adele Steiner has two books. The first is a book of poetry called The Moon Lighting (March Street Press) and the second is Look Ma: 'Hands' on Poetry from Dog Ear Publishing.
Instructor Nan Fry has had her work published in The Best of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet (Del Ray).
Member Alison Carter’s first full-length play won second prize in the WV Writer's Contest in the Stage Play category. Alison worked with instructor Martin Blank.
Member Solveig Eggerz' first book, Seal Woman, was just released from Ghost Road Press. Read about the book here: http://ghostroad.wordpress.com/grp-prose/seal-woman-by-solveig-eggerz/.
One of David Taylor's students in his Fall '07 Science Writing workshop, Joy Hecht, published an essay she worked on during the course, "about environmental economics and the challenges of placing a value on a mountain." As David writes, "It came out as a beautiful photo essay, 'How much is that mountain?' in the April 2008 issue of Africa Geographic (http://www.africageographic.com/). It's a lively read and a thought-provoking look at how we value nature and other aspects of our lives."
That's what we have for now. Look for these announcements in our upcoming editon of The Writer's Carousel. Also featured in the issue will be an interview with poet Kyle Dargan, a "From the Workshop" essay with Ramola D, and more.
If you're a Writer's Center member or instructor and have publications or announcements you'd like to have posted here, please send them along!
Until next time...
