Just what is the AWW LitSalon? It's a new program that is a fantastic, fun way to enjoy an afternoon with fellow literature lovers, hob-nob with a celebrated author, and support Antioch Writers' Workshop... all at once! And get a tax deduction, too! Our goal is to hold two or three AWW LitSalons, on various literary topics and in interesting, unique settings in the Greater Miami Valley, each year.
Our next LitSalon is Sunday, February 12, 2017, 4:00-7:00 p.m., and features Tim Waggoner, author of more than 30 published novels in the fantasy, horror and sci fi genres. Tim's publications include his own original work as well as television series tie-ins and feature film novelizations, so he will offer insight not only into his own writing life, but into these unique areas of fiction writing. Learn more about Tim and his achievements at www.timwaggoner.com
The LitSalon will be hosted by and held at the home of Kate Geiselman, AWW Vice President, essayist and Sinclair Community College creative writing instructor. (Please note that Kate's home is a townhouse, and the event will take place on the second story of her home; no elevator access. Directions will be provided after registration closes.) The event will be em-ceed by Ron Rollins, Editor of the Dayton Daily News. The afternoon will also feature tasty treats and beverages, and a fun raffle auction... all in support of the Antioch Writers' Workshop!
