This creative celebration of prose readings, poetry performance, stand-up comedy, music, panels and more will star some of the literary, entertainment, and music world’s best and brightest. There are a few spots still open, so if you’d like to perform please email [email protected]
Jose Rivera, Academy Award nominated screenwriter for The Motorcycle Diaries, will premiere an excerpt from his debut novel and Jillian Lauren, New York Times Best-Selling author of Some Girls: My Life in a Harem will read from her work.
CW’s Life Unexpected creator Liz Tigelaar and star Shiri Appleby will be featured in the “Script to Screen Panel.” The panel “Sophomore Success: What Happens After the First Book?” features authors Mark Sarvas (Harry, Revised), Deirdre Shaw (Love Or Something Like It), Brad Listi (Attention. Deficit. Disorder.) and Brooke Berman (No Place Like Home).
The performances will run 24 hours, as will the food, drinks, and revelry. There will be a silent auction, giveaways, and attendees can explore the amazing workspace that is The Writers Junction. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to The Young Storytellers Foundation (http://www.youngstorytellers.com).
The Writers Junction is located at 1001 Colorado Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90401. www.writersjunction.com
