Author Visit: Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President by Rebecca Sive

10/25/2018 - 6:00PM

  We are excited to have Michigan author Rebecca Sive come to speak about her book Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President right before the midterm election.  Women are wildly underrepresented at every level of the US government: federal, state, and local.

Paneled Discussion & Seminar: How Do Authors Make A Living

11/10/2018 - 6:00PM

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Writing Workshops Detroit and hosting them for a paneled discussion centered around the central question, how do authors make a living?  But, it would seem, this is a conversation that no one is having.  It's no secret that there's little money in writing, and that competition for the few resources — prizes, residencies, — is fierce. From MFA programs to submission fees, we invest heavily in our craft but receive debt and rejection in...
