See you April 14 at Redwod Writers in Santa Rosa

I’ll be attending the monthly meeting of Redwood Writers Sunday, April 14, 2019. The topic will be working with illustrators, something I don’t plan to do anytime soon, but I expect I’ll learn something new anyway. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about opportunities for writers in the North Bay and upcoming events of interest. Hope to see you at the Flamingo, 2777 Fourth Street in Santa Rosa, from 2:30 to 4:30. It’s a good idea to come a bit early to socialize and network. Cost is $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers.

This is Laura McHale Holland’s book in progress. The ebook version will be free for people who join Laura’s readers group.

In an interview with Sonoma West, Hilary Moore described readers theater as “acting from the shoulders up.” She went on to say that from the audience’s perspective, “It’s just five of us standing up there with our music stands and our scripts. There are no props. We’re in black – with a touch of color. But we read with expression and interpretation. It really makes the work come to life… Sometimes we even surprise the people who wrote the pieces.”
