On Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Swampscott library hear successful authors talk about their craft. It's an impressive line-up of professors and published authors including a candidate in fiction for the 2013 National Book Award: Elizabeth Graver (on the Long List for the 2013 National Book Award), Gary Goshgarian, Laura Harrington and Nancy Lusignan Schultz.
The authors/professors explain how you can go about making your ideas into something that is ready to be published. These professors all teach English and Creative Writing at our local universities and will all speak about the difficulties of working at one job while trying to write, their individual creative methods and perhaps give some helpful hints on completing the writing process.
