Speaker: Molly Dwyer
Topic: Story Stalking
When we recognize, encourage and respond to synchronicity and dream, the power of our storytelling flourishes.
June luncheon speaker Molly Dwyer will discuss Story Stalking, a hands-on approach for accessing sources of creative insight and inspiration. Story Stalking can deepen the authenticity of any storyline.
Dwyer was honored in 2010 by the National Women’s Political Caucus of Mendocino County for “Writing Women Back into History.” Her debut novel, Requiem for the Author of Frankenstein, was nominated for the 2009 Northern California Book Award in Fiction; and in 2008 won the Independent Publishers Book of the Year Award and the Indie Book Award for Historical Fiction. Molly is the Founding President of the Writers of the Mendocino Coast, a branch of California Writers Club. She writes local history columns for Mendocino’s Kelley House Museum and works as an editor, writing coach and writing group facilitator. She holds a PhD in Humanities and teaches Critical Thinking at Mendocino College in Ukiah, CA. She is currently rewriting her second novel, The Appassionata, set in the 19th century Paris of Chopin and George Sand. The Appassionata follows the lives of the visual artists, musicians, and writers who were shaped by Romanticism.
