Virtual Writing Series: June 10th w/ Jill Sanford

Our bi-monthly Writing Series is going virtual (for now)!

Join us Wednesday, June 10th, for another Virtual Writing Session! This time we welcome nationally published outdoor journalist (and previous bookseller extraordinaire at Word After Word Books!) Jill Sanford as our guest lead!

Jill has contributed pieces on climate action, conservation policy, gear, culture, and stewardship for a variety of outdoor publications and brands, including Outside, Range, Outdoor Retailer, Trust for Public Land, Marmot, Therm-a-rest, and Outdoor Project. Jill’s writing session will dive into how to write for yourself vs. writing to get paid, the world of adventure writing, finding your own voice on even the most generic assignments, and nailing a pitch to an editor. You can find out more about Jill and check out her writing samples at

This session will take place virtually via Zoom. Advance registration is required for participation. Once you complete your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the link to register for the appropriate Zoom session. 

We plan to offer as many upcoming virtual writing sessions as we can, so please mark your calendars and check back here for updated events!

Read more about our writing sessions:

Writing sessions are held in the store every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, (unless otherwise specified), from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and will focus on building writing practice through prompts, writing exercises, and shared readings.

Sessions will incorporate general writing practice with timed prompts and reading out loud (always voluntary), as well as at least one writing exercise every session, varying based on the theme. Themes include character building, description, grammar, word play, short stories, memoir, etc. We'll do something new each week!

We invite special guest authors and writers to lead occasional sessions, so if you know someone who might be interested, of if you would like to lead a session yourself, please contact us at the bookstore!

Sessions are $15 and must be purchased in advance. Want to save money by attending more than one session? Purchase a 4-pack and attend any four sessions of your choice (they do not have to be consecutive) for just $50!
