January 2019 marked FIVE incredibly productive and successful years of craft publishing for Stillhouse Press. For those who are attending AWP's 2019 annual conference and book fair in Portland this year, we encourage you to come out and help us celebrate!
Join us for #AWP19 in Portland, Oregon!
This past January marked five incredibly productive and successful years of craft publishing for Stillhouse Press, and we’re thrilled to kick off our four year at one largest conferences and bookfairs in the United States, the Association of Writers & Writing Professionals (AWP) annual conference.
Catch two of our absolute favorite writers—Anne Panning (Dragonfly Notes: On Distance and Loss) and Anita Felicelli (Love Songs for a Lost Continent)—read and sign books at this year’s 2018 Fall for the Book festival.
Readings will be followed by light snacks and adult beverages, so definitely don’t miss out!
Time: 3:30 - 5:30pm
Location: George Mason University, Merten Hall, Room 1203
A novelist, a short story writer, a nonfiction writer, and a poet come together to talk about the ways we document and explore history in contemporary literature. With an intriguing range of perspectives, Douglas R. Dechow, Rachel Hall, Anna Leahy, and Emily Gray Tedrowe will read excerpts from their most recent books and talk about how they grapple with history in their writing. Their work draws from women's history, the Holocaust, the Iraq War, and the space age in which many of us alive today came of age. The evening will invite readers to think about the ways we can grasp the meaning of events even as they slip into the past.
It’s been an exciting year for Stillhouse Press and the Santa Fe Writers Project! Come hear our fantastic authors read and share in some post-conference libations.
