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.
I’ll be facilitating a conversation with author Sonia Antaki about her novel Red Dove: Listen to the Wind at the Westport Playhouse on October 24, at 7pm. Contact me for details if you’d like to attend.
And I’m speaking at the Fairfield Library’s Writers’ Conference which takes place on November 2 from 9-4:30pm. I’ll be part of a panel: The A-Z of Publishing Short Writing, along with Ed Ahern and Alison McBain.
I’ll be at the Plumb Library in Shelton on Monday evening, November 18, as the featured speaker for the monthly meeting of SW CAPA, the SW chapter of the Connecticut Authors & Publishers Association. I’ll be talking about Overcoming the Obstacles to Getting your Work Published, and attendance is free.
On November 20, at 7pm I’ll be at the Westport Library interviewing Westport author Sharmishtha Chowdhury about her book, The First World War, Anticolonialism and Imperial Authority in British India. It focuses on the years between 1914-1924, and presents a multifaceted picture of Indian politics at a time when total war and resurgent anti-colonial activism. I think they asked me to do this because I’m British and have an interest in both India and the aftermath of World War 1.
And on Saturday, December 8, at 5:30pm, I’ll be talking to Rochelle Almeida, author of The Year the World was Mine at the Pequot Library.
The Write Connexion won 2019 awards from the CT Press Club and the NFPW, and is dedicated to anything useful I find for writers, some of it local, and some of it of more general interest. I interview writers, give you useful links for writers’ info around the web, and generally help you connect with anything which will help you write more, better or at all!
