The 1st ever Wayward Women Writers’ Campout is happening this weekend in Indian Valley, Plumas County California. Writers from all over the Pacific Northwest will be descending upon the valley for three days of writing and hanging out and having fun.
On August 11th—This Saturday night–5 of those writers will be reading their works at the back room at the Taylorsville Tavern from 7 pm onward. Particularly of note is Jenny Hayes of Seattle, Michelle Gonzales, of the Bay Area, Rebeca Dunn-Krahn of Vancouver and Bonnie Ditlevsen, editor of Penduline Press. The women will be reading fifteen minute sets of their work followed by an open mike session. Margaret Elysia Garcia will be the hostess/emcee for the evening.
Admission is free, however we are raising money for writer gas money AND the Taylorsville Community Pool! Please give generously.
It should be noted that all of these writers met through Ariel Gore’s Literary Kitchen workshop. If you’ve never taken a with Ariel, do so! She has a great knack for creating a community of writers who produce their best work in this environment (www.literarykitchen.com)
