Four local authors will speak at the National Unpublished Writers Day event on Jan. 31 in the Vancouver Community Library. Admission is free and open to the public.
Local authors Christi Krug, Mel Sanders, Toni Partington and April Bullard will be speaking about their success.
“It’s aimed at people who are in the beginning process of becoming a writer,” said Christopher Luna, master of ceremonies for the event. “Writing can seem very mysterious until you have an opportunity to learn about it, and getting so up-close and personal with other writers is a great experience.”
National Unpublished Writers Day was founded in 2011 by Washington State University Vancouver Professor John F. Barber. Barber was inspired by the work of Richard Brautigan, an American writer whose collected library of unpublished works was permanently installed in the Clark County Museum in 2010.
