Posted: 22 Oct 2009 11:57 AM PDT

Ideas for new stories pop into my head all the time. Sometimes they slowly creep into my waking moments. On other occasions, the ideas force their way to the forefront of my thoughts. It doesn’t matter how the idea comes to life, I can’t ignore them. So that I don’t lose the idea forever, I’ve devised what I consider to be an effective way to keep the material straight in my poor

6th Annual Essence of Motown Literary Meet and Greet

For Immediate Release         Contact: Sylvia Hubbard
(313)289-8614

Popular Writers Group Hosts Annual Celebration of Literacy
Detroit, MI (July 31, 2009)—Motown Writers Network presents its sixth annual Essence of Motown Literary Meet and Greet showcasing local and national authors on Saturday, August 8 from 11am-2pm at Barnes and Noble (WSU Campus) 82 W. Warren, Detroit. Panelists will discuss areas such as marketing and promoting before and after publishing, finding readers and working together to create a stronger reading community.

More than 50 popular authors are scheduled to attend the event that has grown into one of Michigan’s premier literacy and literary events. Dozens of book lovers of all ages will experience the joys of purchasing autographed books, hearing passages from their favorite authors and and celebrating the written word. Some of the featured authors include:

  • jessica Care moore, poet and recording artist
  • Karen White Owens, best-selling romance author
  • Jacqueline D. Moore, African American Literary Award Nominee
  • Sandra Epps, author and artist
  • Monique Mensah, new author of dramatic fiction

“In a city that plays host to a multitude of writing talent, there are, surprisingly, very few outlets for networking within the Detroit literary community,” admits Motown Writers Network founder Sylvia Hubbard. “Aspiring Metro Detroit writers and authors will be happy to forego their otherwise national travels to attend this wondrous local event.”

Motown Writers Network,which began in 2004, brings together literary groups, readers, poets, illustrators and publishing professionals in order to strengthen the literary community.
