Join Us Sat., Nov. 2, for IWOSC Westside Satellite Reads!

Author Alan Eisenstock reads from the memoir
Love Thy Neighbor at our September Meeting. 

In November, the IWOSC Westside Satellite is excited to feature participants and people who signed up for our mailing list as Reader/Writers. We’ve had a wonderful response, with writing that spans science fiction, memoir, novel, flash fiction, travel writing, and magical realism.

They’ll be appearing at our regular location for the satellite, St. Mary’s of Palms, and the public is invited to come hear their work for a $5 fee.


Evelyn Duboff, an award-winning short story writer, playwright, and poet, will read a short short story called Vibrations.
J. Dianne Dotson, sci-fi writer, reading from her second book which came out this year: Ephemeris: The Questrison Saga: Book Two.
Donna Lawrence, a widely published writer of articles and published author, who will read a travel piece which won the Silver award for Travel Memoir in the 2015 Solas Awards for Travelers’  Tales.
Linda Lichtman, a humor writer who will be reading from her upcoming 2nd memoir, How I Buried My Mom While Still Attached to Her Umbilical Cord.
Alex House, a short story writer and novelist, will read from her novel, The Children of Cortès. She writes magical realism.
David Harper, award-winning actor, writer, producer, and director, will likely read from his current novel-in-progress.
Lyle Royer, author of two books – a medical thriller and a soft sci-fi, will read from his science fiction novel Maiden Voyage.
Gloria Garvin, an anthropologist, writer and editor, will read from her book, Paul’s Story – Memoir of an American Artist.
Joel Fleiss, an author and former CEO in the software biz, will read from A World Without Fear, his first novel and third book.
Erana Leiken, a widely published writer of articles and more, will read from her memoir.
