Writer’s Connection is excited to announce our first speaker of the new year — D. L. Mayfield!
D. L. Mayfield has just released a new book, Assimilate or Go Home: Notes from a Failed Missionary on Rediscovering Faith. A regular contributor to Christianity Today and a past columnist for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Mayfield is a fearless writer who pushes herself and her readers to grapple with what it really means to join God in loving the least of these. We can’t wait to hear the wisdom she has to share with us! Join us on October 27 at 7 p.m. at Rolling Hills Church.
With this new year come a few changes to Writer’s Connection. Please note that we are now meeting quarterly instead of monthly. Dates, locations, and speakers for January and April will be announced at the October meeting.
Another change: Cornelia Seigneur, after heading up Writer’s Connection the past 10 years, needs a break to focus on her continued healing since the accident. She looks forward to continuing in a role as chief cheerleader! Astrid Melton and Sarah Sanderson have stepped up to slide around in the big shoes Cornelia leaves behind. Astrid and Sarah love the Writer’s Connection community and are eager to continue creating this space for faith-filled Portland writers to gather.
