Me, you, Seattle’s Elliott Bay Book Co — this Saturday, 10/25

October 23rd, 2008

If you’re in the Seattle area and missed my big fat book launch shindig last week, don’t fret. We’ll have the opportunity to meet this weekend at my Elliott Bay Book Company reading and Q&A.

The agenda:

  • Elbow-rubbing with like-minded indie professionals and creative types
  • Your best attempts to stump me with “freelancing during a recession” questions
  • Talking shop about the freelance life in the Pioneer Square pub of our choosing after the reading

The details:

When: Saturday, October 25, 2 p.m.
Where: Elliott Bay Book Company, 101 South Main Street, Seattle
Co-sponsor: Hedgebrook

    Unfortunately I’m in Ohio, but will be moving to Seattle in July.

    Michelle,

    I really enjoyed your reading on Sat. and am now halfway through your book. Which isbeen so helpful!

    I was feeling a bit bleak about my prospects starting out as a freelance writer in this economy, and visions of slinging overpriced fish at a snooty restaurant for the rest of my life were dancing through my head, until your positivity rang through.

    I was wondering if you could recommend any local freelance networking groups?

    Thanks,
    Heidi Schiller
