Writing Series: Liz Tucker
Join us for a bi-monthly Writing Series at Word After Word Books!
On Wednesday, February 26th, we'll have local author Liz Tucker in to lead a session on writing deeper into theme.
Liz is a graduate of San Francisco State University's Creative Writing program, as well as the two-year Stanford Novel Writing program. Her work can be found in Transfer Magazine, Red River Review, the Aroostook Review, Women on Writing Spring 2011 Flash Fiction Contest, and Tahoe Blues, an anthology published by Bona Fide Books. Last year one of her original plays was produced at Truckee Community Theater. Liz's first novel, Fault Lines, is being considered for several book prizes, and she is currently working on her second novel, You Don't Belong Here, with her mentors Pam Houston, Joshua Mohr, and Samantha Dunn in the two-year Writing By Writers Program.
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 or $20 at walk-in. 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!
