Texas Writes Event in Mason, Texas

Posted by Sally Clark on Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Texas Writes at the Mason Co. M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library in MasonTX
 
March 17, 2018  10:00 am to 1:00 pm
 
Texas Writes is a statewide program that brings accomplished authors to rural libraries for a half day of presentations and panel discussions. Each event is free and open to the public.
 
This event will feature presentations from authors Amy Gentry and Donna M. Johnson. More information on the presentations will be posted prior to the event. To pre-register for this event, contact the library at (325) 347-5446.
 
Amy Gentry: What’s My Motivation?: Plotting Thrillers & Mysteries from he Inside Out
 
          Want a thrilling, page-turning plot with a killer twist that’s original – but believable? Amy Gentry will talk about tapping into your characters’ motivations – and your own – to build breathless suspense the organic way.
 
          Amy Gentry is the author of the debut thriller Good As Gone, published in 2016 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Released in 19 countries worldwide, Good as Gone was a New York Times Book Review “Editors’ Choice,” an Entertainment Weekly “Must List” Pick, and winter of the Texas Institute of Letters’ Steven Turner Award for Best Work of First Fiction. Her second thriller, Last Woman Standing, is forthcoming in the next year, as is a nonfiction book about Tori Amos for Bloomsbury Press’s 33 1/3 music series. Amy holds a PhD in English and lives in Austin with her husband, son, and two cats.
 
Donna M. Johnson: But Seriously: The Use of Humor in Personal Narrative
 
          Comedy is often defined as tragedy plus time. In this mini workshop we will explore how to gain distance from our own stories in order to identify comedic threads that enable us to create nuanced and layered memoir. We will look at he work of published authors as well as utilize writing prompts.
 
Donna M. Johnson is the author of Holy Ghost Girl, a critically acclaimed memoir deemed “enthralling” by the New York Times and “compulsively readable” by Texas Monthly. Oprah named the book to her Memoirs We Love list. Holy Ghost Girl won the Mayborn Creative Nonfiction Prize and took top honors at the Books for a Better Life Awards in Manhattan. Donna has written for Huffington Post, The Rumpus, Shambhala SunPsychology Today, and other publications. Her work has been collected in the Her Texas and Beyond Belief anthologies. Donna is a Ragdale Fellow and was recently awarded a fellowship at the Lucas Artists Residency. She is currently at work on a second memoir.
