I am excited to be participating in the upcoming Orcas Island Lit Festival, April 13 to 15, 2018. The mission of the Lit Fest is to bring together people who love to read books with the authors who love to write them. All weekend, festivalgoers will be able to participate in dynamic panel discussions, writing workshops, and a lit walk, featuring exciting new literary voices, New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, and award-winning poets. Please visit www.oilf.org for more info.
Below is a description of the panel:
April 15, 10:45a to 11:45—Black Box
THE ARTFUL EDITORS
The highly praised Artful Editors (Naomi Kim Eagleson and Todd Summar) discuss how to work with a developmental editor to produce your best manuscript. Award-winning writer and poet, Carolyne Wright, will join them to add her wisdom on editing, too. Wright's most recent poetry collection is This Dream the World: New & Selected Poems (Lost Horse Press, 2017), the title poem of which received a Pushcart Prize and was included in Best American Poetry 2009 and the Pushcart Prize XXXIV: Best of the Small Presses (2010).
