Phil Slattery, 2015
I learned via e-mail from local radio host and general manager, Scott Michlin of KSJE 90.9 FM (a PBS station) , that he will interview me on May 24 at 7:00 a.m. about the Farmington Writers Circle and our sponsorship of the Writers Meet and Greet scheduled for June 9. I look forward to this opportunity to discuss and promote both the Writers Circle and the Meet and Greet.
The Farmington Writers Circle is an organization of local writers and authors who want to develop better ways of marketing and publicizing their works.
The Writers Circle is sponsoring the Writers Meet and Greet, a writers networking event at the Artifacts Gallery (http://artifacts-gallery.com), 302 East Main, Farmington, during the Farmington Art Walk on June 9 between 5pm-9pm.
The Writers Circle is inviting all authors, novelists, and writers of all genres and styles from throughout the Four Corners area to attend the Meet & Greet to meet their readers, participate in readings and book-signings (several authors have already signed up for one and/or the other) and to network with any local publishers, critics, reviewers, and anyone else involved in the local writing industry. The names of the authors expected to attend will be announced at a later as we receive responses to our invitations.
Anyone who reads anything or is involved in reading, writing, or literature is invited to attend and meet their favorite local authors. If you are a reader or writer of any genre (published or unpublished); an arts or literature critic; a reviewer, a publisher, a literary agent, or someone who interviews writers or authors on radio or TV; if you promote reading,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. Just show up. The purpose of this event is for writers and readers of all types and genres to make contacts and to network. Please bring your business cards, flyers, or other material you wish to hand out.
Visit the Farmington Writers Circle website at Farmingtonwriterscircle.wordpress.com periodically for updates as June 9 approaches. You can sign up to follow the blog via the right-hand menu on the website’s home page.
Information on the Art Walks can be found at https://farmingtonnm.org/events/summer-art-walk.
Refreshments will be available along with a salsa-tasting. Attire for the event will be casual.
To participate in the book-signing or to read from your works, please contact Roberta Summers at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 505-325-4338. There are a limited number of spots available for each and they are filling up fast. You may be able to get in the night of the event, if someone does not show up.
Check back frequently for updates.
