The Missouri Author Project wants to find the best self-published book in the state of Missouri. This year's contest kicks off on April 1, 2018, and submissions will be accepted through June 30, 2018.
Host/producer Maria Vasquez Boyd talks with artist Nathan Sawaya, board President of the Writers Place Anne Gatschet, writer Eve Brackenbury, Prospero’s Book owner/writer Will Leathem, & Dan Storm from the stage production of Bent.
The Writers Place has now teamed up with Johnson County Library's #READ LOCAL writing contest. January's theme is TIME. So, come on, start writing! You could be our next featured writer.
Are you sick of the sound of your own voice? Do all your poems end basically the same way? Do you sometimes think you'll throw your laptop across the room if you find yourself writing one more line about your grandmother? Can you just not shake the word “dark”? If any of the above (or similar) applies, then this is the workshop for you Want to get shaken, not stirred? Bring paper or your laptop and show up. Extra added incentive: you'll go home with a useful handout so you won't lose momentum.
Participants note that the KC Marathon route on the morning of October 20 goes near The Writers Place. Check route to avoid delay: Marathon route link.
