At February's meeting on the 24th, our presenter, Marni Freedman, brought a flyer with lots of information about upcoming events and resources for writers, especially for memoir writers. This post includes all those events plus a few additional ones, just for you, San Diego writers.
These events can also be found on the Calendar of Events page of the Guild's website. For more information on any of the events, check out the Calendar.
If you have an event coming up in the future, let us know so we can include it on the calendar. Send information to firstname.lastname@example.org. And check out the Calendar of Events from time to time to see what's happening in the San Diego world of writing.
Saturday, March 7, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., the San Diego Memoir Writers Association meets at San Diego Writers, Ink. The presenter will be Nathan Agin who will discuss options for creating audio books.
Saturday, March 7, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Authenticity Fest offers an opportunity to get in touch with your authentic self. While this is not a writing event, anyone thinking of or working on memoir writing may benefit from exploring those aspects of life we try to keep hidden from others, and perhaps even from ourselves.
