Amy Segreti, Boulder, Colorado, will be hosting the Boulder Writers’ Workshop Literary Salon on Sunday, March 9 from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the Meadows Branch of the Boulder Public Library.

Amy Segreti has worked as a reporter for major newspapers, managing editor for magazines, and editor-in-chief of a longform print magazine. She is now an independent writer and editor-for-hire with a passion for immersion journalism. She lives in Boulder and travels frequently to New York City.

She will be reading an excerpt from her forthcoming book of immersive stories, Your Mother, She’s Very Boring. She will also be leading a discussion about immersion journalism and how it reflects the new American Dream (mobility, freedom and experience), how to be an entrepreneurial writer (and how to get paid to write anywhere), plus how to pitch queries that get noticed by magazine and newspaper editors.

The Literary Salon is fashioned after the great salons of Paris in the Eighteenth Century, and is free and open to the public. Members talk about their writing successes and challenges, solicit advice, share their experiences and keep each other up-to-date on trends. Our topics range widely–covering the art, psychology, spirituality, business and craft of writing and publishing. All genres and experience levels are welcome.

The Boulder Writers Workshop is a private organization that offers classes, workshops, support and networking opportunities to writers in the Boulder and Denver area.
