Dani Shapiro at Poets & Writers Live
Dani Shapiro will be the featured reader at Poets & Writers Live: INSPIRATION.
The author most recently of Still Writing: The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life from Atlantic Monthly Press, Shapiro is a perfect addition to the program for this inaugural Poets & Writers Live event, which has Inspiration as its theme.
The event will take place on Saturday, January 11 in Los Angeles. Kevin Larimer, editor in chief of Poets & Writers, will lead a session on Publishing 101; Cheryl Klein, director of our Los Angeles office, will lead a discussion on local resources for writers; poet Harryette Mullen, fiction writers Ron Carlson and Charles Yu, and LA Times columnist and author Meghan Daum will discuss what motivates them to write. We'll finish the day with a literary mixer at a local watering hole.
Space is very limited. Register today at the Early Bird price of just $50. (After January 1, registration will be $75.)
Poets & Writers Live is a new initiative that aims to bring together everything you expect of Poets & Writers -- trustworthy information, inspiration, and community -- in a real-time, real-life forum. So, if you're not in southern California, stand by! We plan to bring Poets & Writers Live to other cities, and to develop an online extension.
