Love Writing? Meet Writers, Get Inspiration and Cake at MOSAIC Party Oct. 24 Authors, writers from Tribune and Sun-Times will share tips

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-4-33-02-pmIf you are a writer, you know the most important reason for eating cake: to allow a few more minutes of procrastination while you stare at a blank screen.

Beat that procrastination problem Monday evening, Oct. 24, at the MOSAIC Writers’ Party at National Louis University’s Chicago campus, 122 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago. You’ll get so much inspiration from four well-known writers that you won’t need excuses to start writing that first paragraph.

And in a true win-win, you still get to eat cake at the party, because it celebrates the release of MOSAIC 2016, the annual literary magazine of National Louis University’s M.S. in Written Communication program. Students in the program contributed the prose which fill its pages.

The MOSAIC party is free, but an RSVP is required to nl.edu/mosaic, or call (312) 261-3010.

The following published authors will provide career tips,  observations on getting your books and articles published, and advancing in writing-related positions:

  • Dawn M. Turner,  author, former columnist and editor of “Exploring Race” for the Chicago Tribune
  • Rick Kogan, author, columnist, radio host and Journalism Hall of Fame inductee
  • Maudlyne Ihejirika, author of “Escape from Nigeria” and Chicago Sun-Times columnist and urban affairs reporter
  • Margie Killeen, columnist for “Make It Better” magazine
