Now that EPIC's wildly successful first season has wrapped-up, let's look to the future. One model is the Ballard Writers Collective, which brings together community authors for live open mic events and online book marketing. From their site, clicking on a book takes you to the local book store -- wouldn't it be great to do this with the Edmonds Bookshop?

Let us know what you would like to see for the future. We have some great literary events planned for the fall, including an evening with Kathleen Flenniken, Washington State Poet Laureate, and the Monday morning writing group, which starts back up on September 17. Enjoy summer and prepare for a busy, literary season!
