Reading at Charmington’s with Kate Angelella from Sounding Sea July 2nd
When I started writing fiction seriously, I struggled to find ways to learn more about the craft. Of course, I joined SCBWI, but with events and conferences scattered all over three states, it was hard to find a consistent, personalized way to learn. I ended up enrolling in University of Baltimore’s Masters of Fine Arts program, which is wonderful, but it’s practically a full-time job and requires a tolerance for accruing student loans.
So I got together with some friends at UB and started Sounding Sea Writers’ Workshop to offer writing classes and tutoring in Baltimore.
Everyone is invited to our launch party and reading on July 2nd from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Charmington’s in Remington. SCBWI MD/DE/WV conference faculty member Kate Angelella will be reading, as well as local poet Tracy Dimond, and local fiction writer Michael B. Tager.
Come early for a delicious dinner at Charmington’s, if you like, and then catch up with Kate, socialize with other writers, and maybe even meet your next critique partner.
We are also giving one scholarship per class to a Baltimore City public school student. Feel free to spread the word if you know any students who love to write!
We are hoping to have 15-20 courses per year, and we would love your suggestions for topics, locations, and professors. If we get enough interest, we will make it happen! Please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas.
Hope to see some of you on July 2nd!
