I ran the Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading yesterday, and it was a total blast! Fourteen members of Broad Universe read from their works and gave away prizes. What is Broad Universe, you ask? In a nutshell, it’s a non-profit organization of science fiction and fantasy writers who identify as female, as well as male-identified people who support female writers. We work together to sell our books at conventions and book festivals, organize readings such as last night’s RFR, and share information and advice.
Several people came up last night and asked for a complete list of the books and readers at the RFR. So here it is, to the best of my knowledge. Broads who were there, please correct me if I’m wrong.
- Terri Bruce read from Dear Robot
- Larissa Glasser read from ???
- Randee Dawn read from ???
- Trisha J. Wooldridge read a poem from Wicked Witches
- Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert read from her novella-in-progress, “Fluff”
- LJ Cohen read from Dreadnought and Shuttle
- Deborah Kaminski read from Damian’s Workshop
- Roxanne Bland read from The Moreva of Astoreth
- Heather Albano read from Timepiece
- Elaine Isaak read from ???
- Anna Erishkigal read from ???
- Morven Westfield read from Wicked Witches
- Rebekah Anderson read from a manuscript in progress
- …and I read from A Witch’s Kitchen
Thanks to everyone who came to hear us read and to all my fellow Broads who tolerated my bumbling.
