Thank You!

Thanks to everyone who came to our initial writers’ launch. We held a small soiree at our home this afternoon and were delighted to host about 30 writers and friends of Blank Slate Press. We had writers and teachers from Washington University, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, Webster University, University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Forest Park Community College. We had a poet, a rhetorician,  a freelance writer, a recent grad from Washington University who is an aspiring novelist as well as an accomplished cellist, a playwright who is currently working on an opera based on the Epic of Gilgamesh (and who doesn’t love Gilgamesh and Enkidu!), several published short story writers, a blogger and sustainability expert, and a writer from the St. Louis chapter of Sisters in Crime. Plus, we were thrilled to have several in attendance from the publishing side of the business (as opposed to the writer side) who were intrigued by the idea and wanted to support our efforts to support area writers.

So, all in all, a great start to what will hopefully be a great company whose sole purpose is to discover, nurture, publish and promote emerging writers from the greater St. Louis region.
