[conventions] NIWA event in Silverton, OR

Yesterday [info]the_child and I went with [info]lizzyshannon to lovely Silverton, OR, to attend a reading and signing sponsored by NIWA, the Northwest Independent Writers Association. Authors present included Luke Alistar, Pam Bainbridge-Cowan, Andy Bunch, Adam Copeland, Tonya Macalino, Cynthia Robbins, and Lizzy Shannon.

After a light lunch, the group convened. Adam introduced the meeting and talked about NIWA's mission of working to provide a publishing collective for authors in the independent press. Everybody then talked about their writing projects, and most folks read an excerpt. A Q&A followed, along with some book sales. It was a nice, relaxing way to spend an afternoon, and fun to hear such a selection of work from newer authors.
