I’m happy to announce that I’ll be one of several guest speakers at this year’s Ann Arbor Book Festival Writer’s Conference on Friday, May 16. It’s an all-day sequence of workshops that includes sessions on creative nonfiction writing with Ken Foster, memoir writing with Jane Bernstein, and novel plotting with Maureen Freely (who’s also Orhan Pamuk‘s translator). I’ll be talking about “blogging for the serious writer” with Claudia Mair Burney, whose books include Murder, Mayhem, and a Fine Man, its sequel Death, Deceit, and Some Smooth Jazz, and the perfectly titled The Exorsistah. The conference has a $100 registration fee, but the street festival on Saturday is free, and that features appearances by Lisa Tucker, Daniel Radosh, Nicholas Delbanco, and NEA blogger David Kipen, among many others.
