Join Us For . . .
• Narrative Resistance Writing Workshops with Ariel Gore: We’ll formally meet for two 2-hour workshops where we’ll generate new work, experiment with genre and structure, take writing we’ve already drafted or new writing through thought-provoking revision stations, and break ourselves out of any worn-out limits. Bring something you’ve been working on or just show up with your computer–or pen and paper.
• Publishing Skillshare with Rad Dad publisher and Indie-press author Tomas Moniz: A conversation / skillsharing discussion on the pros and cons of DIY publishing versus indie press publishing, book tour experiences, and marketing. Come ready to share your thoughts as well.
• Chef-prepared traditional New Mexican family dinner (Yes, there will be green chile apple pie.)
• Word & Image with Rebecca Fish Ewan Push the boundaries of form and genre with the founder of Plankton Press “where small is big enough” & author of the forthcoming graphic memoir By The Forces of Gravity.
• ABQ Zine Fest — with optional space at the Wayward Writers exhibitor table — bring your zines and books!
• We Were Witches book launch & Wayward Writers reading in Santa Fe and/or Albuquerque.
