Description

High Country Writers welcome Lynn Salsi as our program speaker for the regular meeting, Thursday, June 13 at 10:00 am at the Watauga County Public Library. Salsi’s presentation, “Publishing in a Digital World,” will offer details about interesting formats that are little talked about in writing classes. She will share the elements that all stories have in common and will offer insight into publishing in the age of new media and how authors need to be aware of modes, mediums, and formats.
HCW meetings are from 10 a.m. to noon. Programs are co-sponsored by the Library, and the public is invited.
Lynn Salsi teaches fiction writing, creative nonfiction, essay-writing, and academic writing at Kennesaw State University. Her career includes children’s theatre, storytelling, and teaching.
She is the author of books, plays, short stories, and essays and enjoys talking about her scholarly pursuits of the Jack Tales. She has chased the Jack Tales in multiple countries including Newfoundland, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Hungary. She was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her book, The Life and Times of Ray Hicks, Keeper of the Jack Tales published by the University of Tennessee Press. Her second anthology of Jack Tales will be published this fall.
Salsi earned a B.A. in Journalism, M.A. in Creative Writing, and an M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction. She holds a certification in Reader’s Theatre from the University of Southern Maine.

High Country Writers has been “energizing writers since 1995.” Regular meetings are at the Watauga County Public Library on the second and fourth Thursdays of most months from 10 am to noon, and speakers’ presentations are co-sponsored by the library. HCW members present writing / publishing skills workshops the first Thursday of most months, partnering with Watauga County Arts Council to offer them at Art Space.
