Are any of you aware of San Francisco’s Literary Festival, “LitQuake”? If not, you might want to take a look.
It’s a week long Literary Festival featuring readings, classes, workshops, and more, (much of it free!) which culminates in the big event which is “LitCrawl”-a literary version of a gallery crawl or an art walk-only it features writers of all kinds, reading their work in art galleries, bars, and other places whose owners have offered up their spaces for one inspirational evening dedicated to writers and their fans.
As some of you know, I just completed my two years in the Online Writers Certificate program at Stanford and I’ll be in San Francisco for the Certificate Ceremony Weekend in October for my “graduation”. Luckily, this just happens to coincide with LitQuake and LitCrawl, so I’ll be attending, although this time, I won’t be reading. (I’ve done that before and a clip of it can be found on YouTube)
But, when I was taking a look at the festivities for this year, I was pleased to run across this interview with one of my favorite professors from the Stanford program, Joshua Mohr, and thought I’d share it with you.
He’s incredibly talented, generous, and a downright inspiration to aspiring writers, or anyone interested in adding another name to the list of authors whose books they want to read. (When you aren’t writing, painting or doing whatever else it is that you do!)
Check out this link to his interview and take a look at some of the other interviews available on the LitQuake site.
