A supper club connecting
Whatcom writers and industry speakers
November 17th Meeting
We are getting back into the swing of in-person meetings with our first speakers of the year! Currently, we are meeting in the private room at Cascade Pizza at 2431 Meridian St.
Meeting at 5:30; talk starting at 6:30.
*** Note this is a slight change from our usual schedule.
Newly self-published children’s book authors Abbe Rolnick and Susan Conrad will offer tips, tricks, advice, and inspiration from the trenches. They will share their unique approaches and respective journeys navigating the uncharted waters of the KidLit world.
Susan Marie Conrad feels blessed to live a life filled with adventure, as a writer, a paddler, a public speaker, an adventure ambassador, and a mentor. Her role is to expand people's beliefs about what is possible in all areas of their lives. She's happiest with a paddle, a camera, a notepad, or a book in her hands.
Abbe Rolnick grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore and moved with her family to Miami Beach. After attending Boston University, she lived in Puerto Rico, where she owned a bookstore. Her novels and writings reflect her international adventures as well as the unique perspective of an elder who has achieved the honor of being called Bubbie.
Her books include the Generations of Secrets Series (River of Angels, Color of Lies, Founding Stones), Tattle Tales: Essays and Stories Along the Way, Cocoon of Cancer: An Invitation to Love Deeply, and her children’s book, Bubbie’s Magical Hair. Learn more about Abbe and her writings at www.abberolnick.com.
At this time you do not need to RSVP the box will remain however.
New to WWP
Welcome, Pacific Northwest Writers!
We meet every second Wednesday from September to June in scenic Bellingham, WA. Supper starts at 5:30, and the speaker starts at 7:00. Happy hour prices at Nikki's Bella Marina (see map below) apply until 6, if you want a drink to relax while you chat and have dinner upstairs in the Skyline room.
The 2021-2022 year Dues are suspended. Dues are 25 dollars a year or 40 for two years. We use the dues to pay for our speakers to come from around the region, and for an occasional table at local writer events. Our dues year runs from September to June, like our meetings, but will roll over if you pay late in the cycle. If you want to try us out first, feel free. Speakers in the past have included authors Cami Ostman and Robert Dugoni, and agent Donald Maass, covering topics such as social media, self-publishing, memoirs, mixed media, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. It is our goal to offer something for everyone, no matter your place in the writing journey-- just starting or long-published. Old school or new. If you have an idea for a speaker or topic, let us know, but if it has been covered recently it might not be picked up.
