The Eastside Writing Room
Big News: Hybrid’s the Word!
We had our first hybrid meeting in almost a year! In-person at my house and on Zoom! There’s something very special about in-person energy that is inspiring. We’ll be scheduling one hybrid a month along with our weekly Tuesday Zoom. Writing energy abounds!
Bits and Bobs:
- Sunday May 8 AZ Daily Star: A self-publishing article featured Wheatmark president Sam Henrie. Bee Bloeser and I have used Wheatmark for publishing our books. The biggest advantages I found were their accessibility for in-person meetings being located in Tucson ( 2030 E Speedway Blvd Ste 106 Tucson AZ) Also they have a very credible rep and history of delivering good products since 1999. Here’s the link to the story. Arizona Daily Star
- Mercury Retrograde- We’re there now. This came in my daily Lit Hub https://lithub.com but is a reprint from Harper’s
Creative bits today:
Four of us met in person and six Zoomers joined us. We consider the Eastside Writing Room a national group now since former EWR Tucsonans have moved to California, Oregon, Maine, and Vermont. Zooming is a must to keep us all together. Every Tuesday 11:00 AM AZ time. Contact Ethel if you are interested in getting in on that creative energy.
Keep on writing!
