The World of Writing

The World of Writing

by April Sullivan
I was fortunate to attend the 11th Annual Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference last week in San Antonio, Texas. As a visual artist, as opposed to being a writer, it was a whole new world for me. I met writers, readers, editors, marketers, students and professors, and gathered lots of great information to pass along to the writers in the Art Spark Texas community. To learn more about the Association of Writers & Writing Programs, you can visit their website. I was at the conference to promote our Veteran Writing Program.


So first, I want to remind everyone of our current and upcoming writing opportunities:

Here are some writing opportunities I learned about at the AWP conference (click links to learn more):

As a reminder to all the writers out there, if you want to try out your most recent piece of work on a friendly audience, attend our monthly open mic The Lion and the Pirate, at Malvern Books in Austin, Texas. The next event is this Saturday, March 14th, from 7 to 9 pm. (UPDATE: this event is canceled.)

DJ Diesel Dee and April Sullivan at KZSM RadioLast week, I was interviewed about our veteran writers’ circle on the “Veteran Hour” radio show (which airs live on Mondays, 3-4:00 pm) hosted by Diesel Dee, on the San Marcos Community Radio Station KZSM 104.1FM. It was a fun and informative hour. Dee and her co-host Steve, who are both veterans, run a great show, which includes their weekly Ask a Veteran segment which is an opportunity for listeners to submit their questions. Last week’s question was “What was a good memory you had of being in the military?“.  For more information and a schedule of shows, including encore airtimes for each week’s Veteran Hour, you can visit
