Online Reading: Creative Sonoma's Emerging Writers

A reading featuring Creative Sonoma’s inaugural recipients of the Discovered Award for Emerging Literary Artists and judges Elizabeth Stark and Ellen Sussman. You can watch in Zoom or on YouTube!

Join us online for a reading featuring several of Sonoma County’s award-winning writers of poetry and prose.

In 2019, Creative Sonoma awarded five writers the first-ever Discovered Award for Emerging Literary Artists. This award was based on submissions of 20-page manuscripts and sought to shine a career-boosting spotlight on Sonoma County writers whose work hasn’t reached a broader audience. A showcase of their work and the work of five Discovered visual artists appeared at the Museum of Sonoma County.

“Discovered” writer Chelsea Rose Kurnick is thrilled to present a reading featuring the Discovered writers and two of the judges of the award — Ellen Sussman and Elizabeth Stark.

Lineup, bios and schedule TBA!
