Not Afraid

“The emphasis on the persona narrator keeps me focused on the emotion and not disconnected. Also I have learned to take risks and not be afraid to embarrass myself.” — Catherine Wolf, Online Advanced Poetry student

The National Writers Union- Hosts Linda Valdez and Open Mic Jan 16, 2017

The National Writers Union- Hosts Linda Valdez and Open Mic Jan 16, 2017

The National Writers Union will be hosting a reading and open mic on Monday, January 16, starting at 6:00 p.m. at Bookmans on Grant in Tucson. This month Linda Valdez will be the featured reader. She will be reading from her recently published work, Crossing the Line: A Marriage Across Borders (Texas Christian University Press), a personal story about her falling in love with a Mexican man who crossed the border illegally to be with her. Their 27-year marriage “has been a journey of discovery as the daughter of middle-class America and the son of rural Mexico built a life together that honors both cultures. At a time when political rhetoric aims to dehumanize immigrants, this book offers a story of shared humanity.” Linda is a member of the editorial board at The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing in 2003. Her commentary opposing Arizona’s hard-liner immigration laws earned her the Scripps Howard Walker Stone Award for editorial writing in 2010.

This will be followed by an open mic that is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!

The event will be held in the community room of Bookmans Entertainment Exchange at Grant and Campbell in Tucson (1930 E. Grant Rd.), which is in the back of the store behind the children’s literature section. There is ample free parking.

The Writers Studio- 2017 New Writing Opportunities Such As Workshops

I get angry about things, then go on and work. — Toni Morrison
View this in your browser
What are you going to make of this new year?
“Now more than ever”
This year The Writers Studio received a record number of holiday greetings from current and former students, teachers, and members of the larger literary world. Along with the seasonal warm wishes, there was an outpouring of gratitude for the literary community we have built over the past thirty years.

With no corporate or university affiliations, no big donors or opulent fund-raisers, we have been able to follow our conscience and provide serious, technique-oriented workshops in a safe, supportive environment to thousands of of writers, in classrooms and online.  Not surprisingly, many of the notes included that phrase that we use in tough times, “now more than ever.”

Might you benefit from our unique workshops? To learn more about what sets us apart, click here. To get a deeper understanding of our method, click here. To see a complete list of offerings, click here. To ask us a question, write to us here or give us a call: 212-255-7075.
