LEFT COAST WRITERS FERRY PLAZA BOOK PARTY: Marianne Lonsdale – Mamas Write: 29 Tales of Truth, Wit, and Grit
Writing in Community has become a buzz phrase, but what does it really mean? How does it help writers? And where do you go to get it? Writer Marianne Lonsdale will discuss her experiences and involvement in writing communities (Left Coast Writers, Write On Mamas, Lit Camp and Listen To Your Mother). Writing can be such a solitary endeavor, but finding community can energize and connect us. Come hear all about the benefits of collaboration!
Marianne Lonsdale writes personal essays and short stories, and is now focused on developing a novel. Her work has been published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Literary Mama, Fiction365, The Sun, and Pulse. She is a founding member of Write On Mamas, a San Francisco Bay Area writers group.
Marianne has read at various events including San Francisco’s Litquake festival, and is honored to be an alumna of the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley.
She lives with her husband, Michael, and son, Nicholas, in Oakland, California.
