She Writes in California

It would be great to meet other aspiring writers, either journalists, bloggers or novelists. If we have enough people, maybe we can even hold group meetings and get to know each other even more.

For those SheWriters in Southern California: The Inlandia Institute welcomes back Sholeh Wolpé, a poet, literary translator, writer, and editor.

The event will take place at Thursday, Sept. 5, 7 p.m. in the main auditorium at the Riverside Public Library downtown, 3851 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, across the street from the historic Mission Inn.

Born in Iran, Wolpé spent most of her teen years in Trinidad and the U.K. before settling in the United States. Her most recent awards include the 2013 Midwest Book Award and 2010 Lois Roth Persian Translation prize.

Wolpé is the author of several collections of poetry, including "Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths," "The Scar Saloon" and "Rooftops of Tehran," and editor of numerous anthologies, including "Breaking the Jaws of Silence — Sixty American Poets Speak to the World" and "The Forbidden: Poems from Iran and its Exiles."

This event is free and open to the public.

Wanted to share that my She Writes Press-published travel memoir, Americashire: A Field Guide to a Marriage, is FREE on Kindle now through Saturday, August 31, here:

There's a bit of California in the book, as the memoir starts with my husband and me leaving L.A. for London, before eventually ending up in the rural idyll of the English Cotswolds.

I would be delighted if you all check it out. Now go and enjoy your end-of-summer reading!

No, I'm in La Quinta but it's close to Pasadena--well not that close--but closer than say Cleveland.

Hi.  Any She Writers in the Pasadena, California area?

A post about coming to writing later in life...and making use of the resources in Inlandia's literary community.

What is your plan of action when your life becomes too big for your reality? Do you exercise you right to break free?

How "The Electric Company" inspired my 5-yr-old to sign the petition to recall SD Mayor Filner. Why I love PBS Kids!

Is there something you did as a child that you do today? My entrepreneurial spirit and writing go back to my youth.
