Do you have an idea for Arizona’s next great novel? The 2016 OneBook AZ Goes Digital eBook Writing Competition will be accepting submissions for children’s, teens, and adult manuscripts throughout the month of November. One title from each category will be featured in the statewide OneBookAZ community read program, sponsored by the Arizona Center for the Book, and the authors will tour the state in support of the program.
Need help? A ONEBOOKAZ Writing Workshop will be held on Saturday, August 15th, at the Main Library. Guest author Kristen Kauffman will present “Selecting, Polishing, and Submitting: Writing in the Digital Age” from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Participants should bring the most important five pages of their project. There is no charge to attend.
Kristen Kauffman graduated from Goddard College in 2012 and is an instructor of creative writing at Yavapai College. Her Steampunk story called “The Steamstress’s Daughter” was the feature piece in the September issue of The Rejected Writer. She was also a creative nonfiction contributor in the “Bookshop Book”, she has had poetry published in The Pitkin Review and Threshold Magazine, and has two novels published: Just Pretend (2007) and Breakable Rules (2008). This is her second year working with ONEBOOKAZ.
