Many of my writer friends are going to AWP in Los Angeles this year! It is the place to be to network, learn and be inspired. Although it's not inexpensive to attend, I think it's worth it! Prices go up in Feburary so book now! And come visit me!
Dangerous Angel will be sharing a table with Jilly Dreadful of the Brainery. We'll be selling Rough Magick, (signing with Tracy DeBrincat, Mary Pauline Lowry, Ashley Inguanta, Manuel Chavarria and me at 3 pm on Saturday April 2), Fairies in The Kitchen: The Weetzie Bat Cookbook and "What's in Weetzie's Bag" Totes, plus giving you a little taste of the upcoming Weetzie Bat coloring book illustrated by Aurora Lady. The Rough Magick signing will be preceded by a signing of Fairies in Electri-city at A Midsummer Night's Dream Press booth at 2. I'll also be appearing on a panel, through UCLA Extension about one of my favorite subjects--writing in L.A.--and moderated by the lovely and talented Marisa Matarazzo. This is also on Saturday at noon!
Living Fictions: Writing in LA: Los Angeles is a land of self-invention. It sizzles with the magic of hope and is the place where dreams and reality can converge across a landscape inscribed by complex cultural, economic, and geographic diversity. How do these elements color the craft and content of LA’s prose writers? Authors and teachers in the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program discuss LA as a sensibility, a metaphor, and most of all, as a physical and psychic influence on the worlds they create.
More information to come! See you at AWP!
