Heather Donahue, author of GROWGIRL, will join Sierra Writers on Wednesday, June 12, 6:30 pm at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City.

Donahue will lead a lively discussion of memoir writing and her experience with agents, getting published, and how revision can take personal writing to the next level.  The second part of the program is a hands-on workshop with writing and revising on the spot and putting practical tools into action.  Participants should bring paper and pen.

Donahue has written for Los Angeles Magazine, The Huffington Post, Bust and others. She is a columnist for Yahoo! Shine and is at work on an erotic black comedy about a trio of cancer researchers. She teaches personal writing in San Francisco and Nevada City.  Questions will be welcomed during the meeting.
