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.
And 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!
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!
