Are there any Portland-area writers in the house?

Christina Katz, The Writer MamaI’d love to see you at the Wilsonville Public Library this Sunday from 3-5 in the afternoon where you can come hear me talking about how to write and publish nonfiction AND support the Wilsonville Public Library at the same time.

How awesome is that?

We’ll be giving away a $25 gift certificate for books from Writer’s Digest and a year subscription to Yahoo!

Writers ages ‘tween and up will learn a lot from this presentation, which is not just for moms.

Here’s the scoop on the upcoming event. It’s the last one I’ll be doing for awhile, so I hope to see you there!

Northwest Author Series Presents Christina Katz!

My forthcoming book!Author Christina Katz, whose book Writer Mama, How to Raise A Writing Career Alongside Your Kids was published in March by Writer’s Digest Books, will present to aspiring nonfiction writers on October 21st from 3-5 p.m. at the Wilsonville Public Library.

The topic is: You Can Write and Raise Kids – with lots of writing for publication tips for all nonfiction writers (not just moms) to discuss on a gloomy October afternoon.

Exercises during the second hour will help audience members brainstorm their own nonfiction writing topics.

Aspiring writers of all ages, mamas and otherwise, are encouraged to attend. Katz has recently signed another contract with Writer’s Digest Books for a second book. The title will be announced in early 2008. Cost: $5.00 at the door. Portland poet Sage Cohen will host.

Christina Katz has mentored hundreds of writers through her classes over the past six years. As a freelance journalist, she has written over 200 articles for national, regional and online publications. The popularity of her article, “The Art of Making Time for Yourself,” landed her an interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America. Christina is a graduate of Dartmouth College and holds an MFA in Fiction from Columbia College, Chicago. She lives in Wilsonville, Oregon with her husband, Jason, and daughter, Samantha.

This event is part of an ongoing series, the Northwest Author Series, created by Christina Katz and sponsored by Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council & the Wilsonville Public Library. The series runs the third Sunday during the school year from 3-5 p.m., except in December. The series covers diverse genres and brings writers to Wilsonville from all over the Pacific Northwest.

Upcoming authors include: Elizabeth Rusch on writing for children (November), Heather Sharfeddin on contemporary western fiction (January), and more!

Add us to your calendar for an ongoing continuing education experience that can’t be beat. That’s the Northwest Author Series. The third Sunday of every month, except December, through June 2008. Thanks!

    Christina –
    It was great to (briefly) meet you at the library presentation. I am very inspired by your book. I have a fun scrapbook business that is crazy busy but I still have the desire to write a book (or start with articles). I would love to meet with you sometime. I also have a kindergartener but he attends Boones 🙂
