Not That I’m a narcissist, but…

My name is Gabi Coatsworth, and I’m an award-winning writer who loves to support my fellow writers and storytellers. My work has been published in a new anthology: Imagining Monsters, and  Then to Now, A Time Travel Anthology, also in Tangerine Tango: Women Writers Share Slices of Life and in many print and online journals.

I’m currently looking to publish my memoir, and writing a novel in the women’s fiction genre.

UPCOMING APPEARANCES

I run two Meetups for writers in Connecticut, WritersMic, an open mic evening, and the Westport Writers’ Rendezvous, a monthly get-together.

 

Rochelle-Almeida-book-cover-collageAnd on December 8, I’ll be interviewing author Rochelle Almeida at the Pequot Library about her memoir The Year the World Was Mine: An Anglophile Hits a Half Century, which details what happens when a mid-life matron, who loves all things British, leaves home and hearth to spend time working in her dream location, London. I’ll be asking her about the bizarre encounters and hair-raising adventures that came flying at her…

On January 18, from 11am-1pm, I’ll be back at the Pequot Library again, as part of their series of events for writers. This is titled On Publishing, and I’ll be joined by Fairfield University’s MFA Director and author Sonya Huber, and incoming MFA director, author and English professor Carol Ann Davis. Details here.

I was at the Plumb Library in Shelton on November 18, as the featured speaker for the monthly meeting of SW CAPA, the SW chapter of the Connecticut Authors & Publishers Association. I gave a talk about Overcoming the Obstacles to Getting your Work Published, and you can watch the YouTube video here. Go to minute 16, to avoid listening to audience chitchat before the main event!

  1. Hi Gabi,

    Your short story excerpt is beautiful – lovely language and a comfortable nostalgic sense that soothes. I think I see Miggs Burrough’s “What If?” in the pile of books in the picture above, so we share him as a friend as well as Tricia! We met at the Pitchapalooza…All the best, Lea

  2. I like your excerpt as well. I stopped by because you visited me, and I always like to return the favor. And lo, here I found another writer. How much fun is that? I’ll look forward to more visits in the future both directions. 🙂 Marsha 🙂

  3. Hi, Gaby, having a rummage in your website, prior to returning your ‘follow’ on Twitter. Loving your blogs, especially as they’re diverse, and not formulaic! I think we’ve all become a little jaded by those writers who prattle incessantly about their books without ever leaving their narcissistic bubble! Great stuff, Gabi, looking forward to more of the same! Kevin Ansbro.
