Have you just written a short story that could compare favorably to the works of Bobbie Ann Mason, James McBride or Ian McEwen?
Or a heartfelt memoir that rivals the late Irish singer Sinead O'Connor's “Rememberings” or actor Stanley Tucci's “Taste: My Life Through Food”?
You've dabbled in poetry and created something unique, but perhaps you're reminded of works by Gwendolyn Brooks, Wendell Berry, or Karl Shapiro?
The Winters Theater Company celebrates and promotes local and regional literary talent by sponsoring “Lit Fest 2,” scheduled for Jan. 24 at the Winters Opera House, 13 Main St., Winters.
“It will be a platform for writers and poets to share their creative expressions with the community and connect with other literature lovers,” wrote Linda Glick, president of the WTC, in a press release about the festival .
Participants will present their selections from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Opera House, a historic building in downtown Winters and the new headquarters of the WTC.
The submission deadline is January 10. For guidelines, visit www.winterstheatre.org/lit-fest.
In the prepared statement, Glick called Lit Fest 1, a collaboration with Winters Friends of the Library, a “huge success,” and said the festivals have become part of the WTC's annual seasons.
