Writing Across the Spectrum presentation for the
Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association (CAPA)
Southwest Chapter

In this session, I will compare and contrast writing requirements for different kinds of publications and audiences (short-form, long-form, poetry, screen plays and theatrical productions) and draw from participants' own experiences.
CAPA chapters meet throughout Connecticut and produce a monthly newsletter to support the efforts of the state's author's, publishers and support services. The Shelton chapter specializes in training and education and I am proud to have been asked to speak at their April meeting. A drawing will be held for free book copies, including a copy of my paranormal thriller, Amanda's Room. Click the cover image below for more information about Amanda's Room.

Life and Death in Black Hell presentation at the
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UCONN Waterbury Branch, 99 East Main St. Waterbury, CT, March 16, 12:00 - 1:30 pm
My father, like many other young boys growing up in eastern Pennsylvania, was pulled out of school in the forth grade to work up to fifteen hours a day in the anthracite coal mines. Those mines fueled the industrial revolution and helped to provide Americans with the highest standard of living in the world. They made a select few wealthy beyond imagination while condemning others to poverty, sickness and often death. Mining created a surreal world of dampness, danger and absolute darkness hundreds of feet beneath the surface.
In this presentation, I will take participants into that world and introduce them to the history, experiences and legacy of life and death deep in the earth.  
The OLLI at UCONN program offers more than 60 non-credit courses at the UCONN Waterbury branch to over 700 adult members over 50.
Attendance to the lunchtime lecture series is normally free for OLLI members who have signed up for the presentation but if you are interested, you can call the OLLI office at 203-236-9924 and ask about attending on a space available basis. For more information about the OLLI at UCONN program, click on the logo below.

That's All For Now.
