Update on Kelle Groom Memoir

We congratulated Kelle Groom a little while back on the upcoming publication of her new memoir, but now there's even better news! I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl will be published by The Free Press/Simon & Schuster in September 2011, not 2012 as we initially reported. Way to go, Kelle! Can't wait for the release.


This year, for the first time, the Other Words conference will feature a workshop in screenwriting, in addition to the core workshops in fiction, poetry, non-fiction, publishing and more. Be sure to visit the FLAC/Other Words site for registration information and more details!
