Next Monday: James River Writers 2014 Registration Opens

Next week you’re going to be hearing a lot from me about the 2014 James River Writers Conference here in Richmond, which will be occurring in October. Registration opens this Monday, and if you want a little preview of what the programming is going to look like, well, just have a gander. I’ll talk more about our guests down the road, but I know that many of you out there will be excited to know that Barbara Kingsolver will be at the conference! In the meanwhile, here’s a video to give you some idea of why the 2014 James River Writers Conference is worth your time if you love the written word.

Place, Art, and Fiction @ James River Writers

This month James River Writers has some great events lined up, particularly if you’re interested in the role of place in fiction or the intersection of art and fiction. Want to write a more authentic RVA? Longing to mash up art and writing? Look no further.

April Writing Show: Coloring Between the Lines: Using What you Know and Where You’re From in Fiction
Veteran novelists and professors—and husband and wife—Carrie and John Gregory Brown talk about mining your own geographical and personal history as writers, as well as tools and techniques for finding out more about what you already think you know about your place—or places—in the world. Moderated by Virginia Pye. Thursday, April 24, 6:30-8:30 p.m., The Broadberry (a new location for this month!), 2729 W. Broad Street, across the street from the Children’s Museum. $10 in advance, $12 at the door, $5 for students.

Learning to See: A Master Class for Writers on the Art and Practice of Looking with Carrie Brown and John Gregory Brown
Carrie and John Gregory Brown offer a shared presentation on writing and art: how art informs and inspires the writer, and how learning to “see” shapes and enriches writing. Short writing exercises and shared reading of those exercises will follow the presentations. Friday, April 25, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., St. John’s Church Parish Hall, 2401 E. Broad St. $60 for members, $100 for non-members.
