Keynote Speaker for Rochester Writer’s Festival

Posted on January 27th, 2011

Pretty cool next step for me:  I’ll be the keynote speaker for the upcoming Rochester Writer’s festival.

My focus will be what I consider to be the three C’s of writing:  craft, creativity, and community.  These three concepts form the basis for what writers need to succeed in today’s world.

This will be my first keynote speech, though I’ve had many speaking engagements in the past–primarily focused on inspiring kids to pursue careers in math, science, and engineering.  I’m excited for the opportunity to share what I’ve been doing to build up the writing community in Rochester, including organizing the monthly Writers Night Out events (recent praise), leading the Rochester Writing Group, and being a founding member of the Rochester Writers Collaborative (link to come).

As soon as the Rochester Community Education link is available for the Rochester Writers Festival, I’ll update this blog entry with a link so you can register.

Pencil in the all-day event for April 9.  Hope to see you there!
