Join the Idaho Writers Guild for a Literary Lunch on Tuesday, February 21.  Guest Author Elaine Ambrose will speak about “Writing with Humor.”

Smoky Mountain Pizza, 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd., Boise

11:30 – 1:30, free and open to the public

Elaine Ambrose is a local author and the owner of Mill Park Publishing.  Her national best-selling book, Menopause Sucks, helps women understand why menopause makes them want to break something. One of the more poignant passages explains why menopausal women often sneeze, fart and wet their pants all at the same time.  Her book, The Red Tease, won a national humor award, and her short story, “Evil Anne and the Mustard Seed,” won a writing award from the Idaho Press Club.  Read Elaine’s humorous blog, Midlife Cabernet, at www.ElaineAmbrose.com.

Feel free to bring along business cards, flyers, or anything else you’d like to share with your fellow writers. Also, we’ll be drawing 3 names to participate in a 3 minute open mic, so get writing! All styles and genres are welcome, as long as the work is original and can be read in under 3 minutes.

Hope to see you on February 21!

Remember, the IWG has a luncheon on the THIRD TUESDAY of each month at Smoky Mountain Pizza on Parkcenter. It’s an opportunity to network with other writers and find out what’s happening in your literary community.
