Ridge Writers Donna Rosenthal–
On the heels of her extremely successful summer program, Ridge Writers has brought publisher/author Jennifer Crittenden back to Ridge Writers to address a new subject, this time “Beyond the Book: websites, blogging, audio versions, publishing others, consulting, and podcasts.” She will speak on Thursday evening, November 3, 6:30 pm in the meeting room of Ridgecrest Presbyterian Church, 633 W. Las Flores. Admission free. Masks requested.
Crittenden has written three books, “The Discreet Guide for Executive Women;” You, Not I;” and “The Mammoth Letters.” Her company, Whistling Rabbit Press, has published four. She maintains three websites devoted to various aspects of her business and writing and publishing.
A devoted life-long reader, she says, “I fooled around a bit with writing in my teens and twenties. After I stopped working full-time, I returned to writing with a vengeance. I worked in corporate America so I wrote my fair share of emails, strategic plans, government and shareholder reports, and thinly disguised requests for money. Most business writing is awful, so I tried to do my part to generate clean, precise prose in a messy world.”
In tandem with this goal through Whistling Rabbit, she plans and produces the Eastern Sierra Book Festival in Mammoth Lakes n July.
Ridge Writers is the East Sierra Branch of the 113-year-old California Writers Club (calwriters.org) that traces its roots to Jack London and friends in the Bay Area, and has 22 branches throughout the state.
