CD Wright Women Writers Conference

The inaugural CD Wright Women Writers Conference at University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR on November 2 and 3 was a smashing success. 

Below, Et Alia's Erin Wood visits ESSE Purse Museum in Little Rock's SoMa District on Friday with Emily Shearer of Minerva Rising Press. The two became friends at AWP 2017 in D.C. in February. 

Erin participated in an engaging writing workshop at ESSE along with a dozen other women, who grew to know one another and each other's writing through the contents of our purses. 

Tayari Jones was Friday's keynote speaker, who captivated the audience with a reading from her forthcoming novel, An American Marriage

Below, Eliza Borne, senior editor of The Oxford American Magazine, speaks on "The Topography of Contemporary Publishing," and Poet/Memoirist Jo McDougall speaks as part of the panel "A Call to White Women: Because the Warp is Everywhere."

During the conference, McDougall joined Erin's Women Makers of Arkansas project.

New Orleans' Times-Picayune Features Can Everybody Swim? on Katrina's 11th Anniversary

On August 30, 2016, Times-Picayune writer Robert Mann says, "On this 11th anniversary of Katrina, let us resolve never to forget the thousands of heroes in the Dome and those trapped at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center who bravely endured and maintained their dignity and humanity in the most inhumane of circumstances."

"Bruce S. Snow, a resident of the Dome that week . . . has published an engrossing memoir of his family's ordeal, Can Everybody Swim? A Survival Story from Katrina's Superdome, (Et Alia Press, $16.95). Snow vividly describes each day in the Dome.
