A brief post today. First, on June 6 Sally and John Freeman will be hosting a special cocktails and conversation (and dinner) event at their home. That event features Robert J. Samuelson, the award-winning writer and author of the new book The Great Inflation and its Aftermath. Sally is a hardworking board member at The Writer's Center, and she and John have put this event together as a benefit. You can learn more about it by clicking here to be directed to a page on this blog.
Next, the editors of the hilarious Bethesda World News are looking for a summer intern. Here's the job description:
New Publication Seeks Intern--Must Be Funny
Looking for a fun way to gain journalism experience? We're seeking a
summer intern to help with various aspects of publishing a fledgling
parody newspaper. Must have a sense of humor, web/social media knowledge,
and your own laptop. Duties may include promotional activities, website
maintenance, idea-generating, video production, and writing. Please note,
this is an unpaid position. Hours/days flexible, p/t. We're willing to look
into college credit, if that's a factor. Please email your resume and
direct any questions to The Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And finally, workshop leader Nan Fry was recently interviewed by Charles Tan over at Sfsignal.com. Nan was recently published in Viking's anthology The Beastly Bride: Tales of the Animal People.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
