Pod: Our International Writing Partnership: A Booster Against Covid
With Sue Katz and Elizabeth Woodcraft:
February 19, 2022 @ 10:40 am – 11:40 am EST
Two writers – Elizabeth Woodcraft in London and Sue Katz in Boston – explore our international writing partnership before and during the pandemic, as well as our varied experiences with the world of publishing. We will do brief readings from our work. We’ll discuss our enduring commitment to encouraging each other, despite living on different continents with conflicting time zones. Surely our experiences of mainstream publishers, small press publishers, periodicals, and self-publishing will resonate with others. We’ll talk about being long-haul writers, now past 70, but still writing and publishing after decades. We welcome your input during a monitored Q&A at the end.
Sue Katz’s business card identifies her as a “Wordsmith and Rebel.” Her writing has been published on the three continents where she has lived, worked, and roused rabble. She has been a martial arts master, promoted transnational volunteering, and partner danced more than her feet could bear. Her fiction books, often focusing on the lives of LGBTQ elders, include A Raisin in My Cleavage: short and shorter stories, Lillian’s Last Affair and other stories, and the novel Lillian in Love. Her short story “The Lipstick Assault in Serene Manor” was recently published by Gertrude Press. For more information about this author and to view book purchase information, visit the Authors page.
During her time as a lawyer in London, Elizabeth Woodcraft represented lesbians seeking custody of their children, as well as victims of domestic and sexual abuse, women from the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, and anti-apartheid protestors. Good Bad Woman and Babyface (HarperCollins), her two crime novels feature barrister Frankie Richmond. Good Bad Woman was short-listed for a CWA prize for best first crime novel, and won a Lambda award in the US (Kensington). The London Times wrote ‘Move over Rumpole.’ Her most recent books are set in the Sixties – Motown, milk bars and ban-the-bomb marches. The Saturday Girls and The Girls from Greenway are published by Bonnier Zaffre. For more information about this author and to view book purchase information, visit the Authors page.
