2019 was the first year for the 1455 Summer Literary Festival. I learned about it a little late, so I was only able to attend part of the festival and didn’t participate as a speaker. It was well done, though, and I was looking forward to attending the entire event this year and to meeting other writers and readers as one of the speakers.
Alas, COVID-19 has driven the Festival online for 2020, which is unfortunate, but it also means we can all attend from the comfort of our own homes and not make the trek to Winchester VA (as charming a town as that is).
I’m pleased to say that I’ll be joining the writer Jessi Lewis on a panel called Writing the Valley, moderated by Debra Lattanzi Shutika. Our panel takes place at 10:30 am on Saturday, July 18.
Check out the whole lineup–there are some great speakers and panels. And it’s all available for free!
