Michigan Writers Cooperative Press
Chapbook Release Reception
Sunday, June 10 @ 7 PM
The Writing House at Interlochen Center for the Arts
Please join us for a reading and reception celebrating the work of this year’s Michigan Writers Cooperative Press chapbook contest winners.
Poet Margaret Fedder, author of Angel Rides a Bike, and Kathleen Pfeiffer, author of Ink: A Memoir will read from their new books.
Seeking Chapbook Launch Team Members
This year, MW Coop Press is doing something a little different to help support the release of our chapbook winners’ books and we would you like to be part of the team helping to make their books a success. Would you like to help?
Michigan Writers is helping our first-time authors to organize book launch teams, which are composed of committed readers and fans that help promote and bring these new books into the world. If you wish to help, you’ll have the chance to read the books before launch, post reviews, talk about the books on social media, promote reading events and, above all, work directly with the writers of books you love.
Our winning books are a short memoir (Kathleen Pfeiffer’s INK) and a collection of poetry (Margaret Fedder’s Angel Rides a Bike). We invite and encourage you to read one or both and, if you are like (or love!) the book(s), to become a part of one or both book launch teams, which are organized in invitation-only groups on Facebook.
To begin, contact Daniel Stewart at email@example.com. Be sure to send both your name and an email address and/or a phone number that you’re using on Facebook (so he can send you an invitation to join the private group). If, after reading the book(s), you are a fan and would like to be an advocate, you’ll become a part of the team.
What better way to begin Michigan summer than by celebrating a beautiful tale of the friendship between a young girl and the mermaid of Lake Michigan. Join us as we welcome Linda Nemec Foster and Anne-Marie Oomen in celebration of their book, THE LAKE MICHIGAN MERMAID.
The Lake Michigan Mermaid is a new tale that feels familiar. The breeze off the lake, the sand underfoot, the supreme sadness of being young and not in control—these sensations come rushing back page by page, bringing to life an ancient myth of coming of age in a troubled world. Freed from the minds of Linda Nemec Foster and Anne-Marie Oomen, the Lake Michigan mermaid serves as a voice of reason for when we’re caught in the riptide. The Lake Michigan Mermaid offers a tender tale of friendship, redemption, and the life-giving power of water. As it explores family relationships and generational bonds, this book is an unforgettable experience that aims to connect readers of all ages.
Linda Nemec Foster is the founder of the Contemporary Writers Series at Aquinas College. She is also the author of nine collections of poetry including Amber Necklace from Gdansk, Talking Diamonds, Listen to the Landscape, and Living in the Fire Nest. Foster was selected to be the first poet laureate of Grand Rapids, MI from 200 to 2005.
Anne-Marie Oomen is author of Love, Sex and 4-H (Next Generation Indie Award for Memoir), House of Fields and Pulling Down the Barn (both Michigan Notable Books) and Uncoded Woman (poetry), among others. She teaches at Solstice MFA at Pine Manor College (MA), Interlochen’s College of Creative Arts (MI), and at conferences throughout the country.
