Hobart Festival of Women Writers Virtual Flash Readings

In order to preserve our platform celebrating women authors, we created our first Virtual Flash Readings. Forty writers participated by recording themselves reading their work. The videos were combined into two seamless, beautiful videos by Jessica Vecchione of VECC Videography assisted by Amber Gray. These videos were aired via Zoom on Saturday, September 12th and 13th, 2020.

Spotlight: Words & Images

It was a childhood of inspiration and creativity. Some summers were spent in the mountains of upstate New York, helping my grandmother at the tourist home she owned on Main Street waiting tables and hanging crisp white sheets on the line, singing and entertaining guests after dinner. At college, I had the opportunity to spend my junior year in Siena, Italy. My early experiences gave me exposure to a world of creative minds and alternative life styles.

They follow the path of the bones.”
