Peace Corps Writers at Peace Corps Connect/Berkeley
Peace Corps Writers will present two programs during PC Connect.
1) Noted writer John Coyne (Ethiopia 1962–64) will talk about writing your Peace Corps memoir, and editor and book designer Marian Haley Beil (Ethiopia 1962–64) will discuss preparing your manuscript for publishing.
2) There will be a panel of writers who have published their memoirs with the Peace Corps Writers imprint discussing what they have learned writing and publishing their own memoirs. The panel includes:
Suzanne Adam (Colombia 1964–66) — author of Marrying Santiago
Kay Gilles Dixon (Colombia 1962–64) — author of Wanderlust Satisfied
Catherine Onyemelukwe (Nigeria 1962–64) — author of My Life and Loves Abroad
Angene Wilson (Liberia 62–64) — author of Africa on My Mind: Educating Americans for Fifty Years, Living Peace Corps’ Third Goal
Peace Corps Writers is also sponsoring two tables in the Exhibit Hall where writers who have published their books with the imprint may sell them.
And finally, the annual Peace Corps Writers Awards will be presented during the closing “NPCA Awards Ceremony.”
