If you’re on Twitter and a lover of books you’ve probably come across #LitChat, the popular discussion about books and their authors that takes place twice a week. Recently LitChat’s founder, Carolyn Burns Bass, asked me to be a guest host on the chat discussing what I feel are some of the important issues facing writers of color today. I wrote a blog post for her on the topic, “Writing to Reach a Broader Audience.” You can read it on the LitChat website by clicking here and then join us for the discussion on Wednesday, February 18, 4-5pm ET. Just follow the hashtag #LitChat on Twitter or use #LitChat’s dedicated Twitter feed channel at www.nurph.com/litchat. Feel free to chime in with comments and questions, I’d love to hear your thoughts. The excellent David Hicks, co-director of Regis University’s Mile-High MFA will be in the stream as well. I hope you can be there, I’m looking forward to it!
