Earlier this year I started an organization called SWAG: the Staunton-Waynesboro-Augusta Group of Writers, a sub-group of the Blue Ridge Chapter of the Virginia Writers’ Club. My primary purpose in forming the group was to provide a vehicle for the reading series I envisioned, and the first reading was held on Bloomsday, June 16. Our next reading will be September 29 and will feature the poet Todd Davis and the local nature essayist Janet Lembke.
But before we get there, SWAG is hosting another event: a Self-publishing Workshop. This will be presented by two local authors, Alexandra Jefferds, author of the novel Earlier Heaven, and Caleb Crimes, author of Star Wars Jesus.
The workshop is free and open to the public on Saturday, August 28, from 1:00-3:00 pm, at the Staunton Public Library.
