Vintage Voices 2009 Anthology

Vintage Voices: Centi’Anni: May You Live 100 Years

Your anthology team, headed by Karen Batchelor, has been hard at work collecting, screening, revising and editing the more than 100 submissions received. The book is in the process of final formatting and copyediting and then will go to the publisher.

This year is our centennial celebration of the founding of the California Writers Club and it is appropriate that our anthology reflect this event. We have more pages, more pieces, and a great variety of writing styles—all of which are engaging. The stories and poems are short, making it possible to read at brief sittings. And you will want to read all of them.

During the past two weeks, each contributor to the anthology has had his or her bio posted on Facebook to generate interest and excitement for our fourth anthology. We’ve also received our first testimonial, some advance praise for the wonderful collection. See our website for that: http://www.redwoodwriters.org/announcements.html.

Our goal is to have the books available by the Sonoma County Book Festival on September 19. On Saturday, September 26, the following weekend, we will launch the publication at North Light Books and Café in Cotati, as we have done the past two years.

Join us for these up-coming events! And keep on writing.
