Challenging Travels: Challenging Writing

Missing your travels? Join us for an evening of travel and adventures that span many countries but also how we capture them in our writing.

  • Missing your travels?

  • Would you like to capture your adventures?

  • Looking for an engaging and interesting evening?

If you answered yes to all of the above, we have something for you; and best of all it won't cost you anything. For obvious reasons, this will be a free virtual event but I am so excited about what is in the works. Grab your favorite beverage, snack and be prepared to be whisked away to far off places.​

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT / 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

The Writing Journey: Tales From Three Authors

“The world is full of dreamers, we need more doers.”…actually you need to be both if you wish to be a writer. There are many who want to be writers and are not sure where to begin, or have written and now wonder how do you create the buzz and attract an agent/publisher, self publish or maybe a hybrid process? Whether you are looking to publish your work put a book out or just to be more proficient at your writing, Rick Antonson, Mike Schauch and Sam Thiara will provide ideas and insights from their respective writing journey. All three have written books but their processes have been tailored to their own respective ways and backgrounds; they’ve each made mistakes they’ll happily share and had successes, sometimes by accident and often by intent. Hosted by award-winning book editor, Amanda Lewis.
