Virtual Writing Series w/ June Sylvester Saraceno

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

Coming up on Wednesday, May 13th, join us for a Virtual Writing Session with special guest June Sylvester Saraceno, local author of the novel Feral, North Carolina, 1965 (our entire staff LOVED this little book!) and her most recent book of poetry, The Girl from Yesterday. In addition to being a writer, June is currently Humanities and English Department Chair at Sierra Nevada University, Lake Tahoe where she is director of the popular Writers in the Woods literary speaker series and founding editor of the Sierra Nevada Review. June will read from her book(s) and lead the group in a writing exercise to get your creative groove on and jump start a new writing project with prompts geared to engage all levels of writers.

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 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!
