Tonight, Roberta Summers, a founding member of the Farmington Writers Circle, arranged to have our writers networking event (which we currently refer to by the working title of “the Meet and Greet”) at the Artifacts Gallery, 302 East Main, Farmington, during the city’s Art Walk on June 9 between 5pm-9pm.
Details on the event are still being worked out, but we plan on inviting as many authors and novelists from the Four Corners area to be there to meet their readers, participate in readings and book-signings and to network with any local publishers, critics, reviewers, and anyone else involved in the local writing industry.
Anyone who reads anything or is involved in reading, writing, or literature is invited to attend. If you are a reader or writer of any genre (published or unpublished), an arts or literature critic, a reviewer, a publisher, a literary agent, someone who interviews writers or authors on radio or TV, if you promote reading, writing, or literacy in any way, manner, shape, or form, you do not need an invitation, you are invited to attend.
The names of the authors and novelists expected to attend will be announced as they respond to our invitations, but, if you are an author/novelist, you don’t need an invitation to attend. Just show up, meet new readers, and pass out your business cards and other contact info.
The entire purpose of this event is for writers of all types to make contacts and to network.
Refreshments will be available along with a salsa-tasting. At least some of our local members will have books to sell.
Check back for more details as we approach June 9. Submit any questions you have via this website. Don’t forget that you can find a link on the right-hand menu to sign up to follow our blog.
