The Writers Lunch: Ask the Experts
with David Colin Carr and Matthew Félix

Friday, May 21, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The Writers Lunch is virtually back! This month we have an editor and a marketing strategist ready to tackle your questions about the writing, editing, publishing, and marketing of your books.

David Colin Carr has been editing and coaching writers of fiction, nonfiction, and memoir for structure, pacing, originality, voice, style, clarity, and linguistic richness for 30 years internationally. He recently published Where Flows the Creek: a Romp in the eDimension, in which an aging elf’s deepest longing guides him from the headwaters of a creek through the breadth and magnificence of the American west to termination in the Pacific. David is in the polishing phase of Melting into Sweetness, an exploration of the challenges of aging and facing termination.

Matthew Félix is a marketing strategist, publisher, podcaster, speaker, and author. Publishers Weekly’s BookLife Prize called Matthew’s debut novel about a young Spaniard’s awakening to his intuition, A Voice Beyond Reason, “(a) highly crafted gem.” Matthew’s With Open Arms won four Solas Awards and topped Amazon’s Africa and Morocco categories. Matthew was also awarded the $750 Solas Grand Prize for his short story The Citroën & the Pomegranate. Matthew’s latest book, Porcelain Travels, won Gold for Humor in the 2019 Readers’ Favorite Awards and was a Foreword INDIES Humor Book of the Year Award finalist.

The Writers Lunch is a casual brown-bag lunch activity on the 3rd Friday of each month. Look forward to mini-reviews on books that have been added to our "literary craft" collection, informal presentations by member writers, and excellent conversation. Join us, share, and learn! Please contact Taryn Edwards if you have any questions. [email protected]
