Who's Your Local Author?
Bookworms Carnival, coming up!
I take it for granted, this vibrant community of artistic and literary folks I live in. Everyone here seems to know someone who's writing a book, or who has a stall at Saturday Market, or who works for the library or one of the locally-owned bookstores (or all of the above). Just the other day my friend Elizabeth mentioned that she plays cello regularly with Virginia Euwer Wolff. I could never keep up with the dozens of successful authors that call Oregon home.
But I know I'm not the only one with local author stories to tell, so for the next Bookworms Carnival, I'm offering you the chance to showcase your local lit scene. Could be an author interview, a book review, a story about an author or local book event. Could be an ode to your local bookstore or library. Maybe you're an author yourself with something to say about the town you live in.
To participate, submit a link to your post (or email your article to me if you don't have a blog), to Worducopia-at-gmail-dot-com. The deadline is June 26, 2009.
And in the meantime, check out the most recent Bookworms Carnival--Paranormal Fiction.
