The Writers Studio Tucson- Presents Advanced Workshop Spring Reading

TOMORROW:
The Writers Studio Tucson Advanced Workshop Spring Reading
w/ David Anderson Reneé Bibby, Lela Scott MacNeil, & Lilian Vercauteren

Saturday, April 19
7pm
Free and Open to the Public

WHERE:
Casa Libre, 228 N 4th Ave, btwn 8th and 9th Streets, parking across the street.  Tucson, Arizona

The Writers Studio Tucson is proud to present a new reading series featuring the work of writers from The Writers Studio Advanced Workshop. Founded in New York City by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Philip Schultz, the Writers Studio has been helping writers achieve full creative potential since 1987. With branches in New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Tucson, the Writers Studio offers a supportive community for writers to study craft and achieve their writing goals. Join our writers as they read new work developed during their time at the Writers Studio.

Readers:
David Anderson was raised in Ohio, came to Arizona to attend the University, and has been here ever since. He is a former teacher and school administrator, and he currently writes and takes photographs in Catalina, Arizona. He is a student in the Advanced Workshop at the Writers Studio Tucson.

 

Whenever Reneé Bibby gets a new version of Word she changes to the autocorrect to automatically add the accent aigu onto the last e. As she was learning to write her name, her parents dubbed the necessary diacritic as a “special feather,” cracking the normal world open to reveal a world of whimsy, the unique, and off-beat—all themes that now infuse her writing. She is a fiction writer, a student of the Advanced Workshop at the Writers Studio, Tucson, a teacher at the Writer Studio, and a founding member of the Low Writer Collective. She has been published in Black & BLUE, andCrack The Spine.

Lela Scott MacNeil was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico, same as the atomic bomb. She has, at various points in her life, been a young girl in a Hans Christian Anderson Fairy Tale, an indie film producer, a scofflaw, a small-time revolutionary, a screenwriter, a big-time corporate marketing executive, a film festival organizer, a tattoo enthusiast, and a recovering New Yorker. She currently works for the University of Arizona Press and teaches creative writing at the Writers Studio Tucson. She is an MFA Candidate in Fiction at the University of Arizona and a student in the Advanced Workshop at the Writers Studio Tucson. Her fiction is forthcoming from Gertrude and Gutter Books.

Although Lilian Vercauteren likes to tell her friends that she was born in Narnia, it was in actuality Naarden, a small fortified, star-shaped city not too far from a place called Amsterdam. Taking a break from the Dutch weather, she flew to the US at age 22 with the famous last words, “I will be back in a year or so.” Of course “or so” is always open for various interpretations. Eight years later she lives in Tucson, where she started following the yellow brick road, better known as creative fiction writing that might one day fork off into screen writing. She is a student in the Advanced Class of the Writers Studio and a member of the Low Writers Collective. While she misses the ocean, she compensates with an acquired taste for monsoons and tacos. Both are wet and salty after all.
