October FWA St. Pete Meeting

For our Oct 8th meeting, author, blogger, and St. Pete Writers Group leader Bria Burton will be presenting. As usual, we'll meet at the Main Branch St. Pete Library at 6 PM. Networking/mingling begins at 5:30 PM. This meeting is open to the public.

Topic: Writing and Running: Improving Craft Through Blood, Sweat, and Tears
What to bring: Something to write with (pencil/paper, stylus/tablet, etc)

Throughout her years as a writer and a runner, Bria has discovered that writing and running have quite a lot in common. She'll be making connections between the craft of writing and the art of running that will help writers cement some important truths about their craft. She'll also be leading the group through a few simple exercises (not the physical kind).

BRIA BURTON graduated magna cum laude from Flagler College with a bachelor's degree in English. In 2008, she joined the Florida Writers Assocation and began leading the FWA St. Pete group in 2015. She also serves as an FWA Board Member. At St. Pete Running Company, she's employed as a blogger and customer service manager. Her speculative fiction has appeared in over a dozen anthologies and magazines, such as The Prometheus SagaBroken WorldsWelcome to the FutureThe Colored Lens, the Journey Into... podcast, and the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. In 2011, her manuscript, Livinity, won a First Place Royal Palm Literary Award (RPLA) in the Unpublished Fantasy Novel category. Her novella, Little Angel Helper, and her unpublished women's fiction novel, Sprinter, are currently RPLA finalists. While she writes, her dog and cat do their best to distract her, which is why they now star in her family-friendly short story collection, Lance & Ringo Tails.
