FBLA Crashes Oddly Named Writers’ Soiree at Formosa

ladwp.jpg

For the record, we never need an excuse to drink with literate people. Last night was the first annual LADWP cocktail party, an homage or a spin-off of the AWP conference last year. Maybe? But the conference has nothing to do with the party last night, they take place months apart and LADWP is said to stand for LA Drinking Writers with Pens.

Weird name. Since we can’t come up with anything better. We like it. Good title. Catchy.

Pictured above are authors Janet Fitch, Erika Schickel and Sandra Tsing-Loh.
