Mag Dimond & Nita Sweeney on “Writers Coming Together”

Join Kirkus Award-Winner Mag Dimond for another installment of “Writers Coming Together” Author Discussion Series.

On May 28th, Mag will interview Nita Sweeney, award-winning author of Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink and the brand new writing journal, You Should Be Writing: A Journal of Inspiration & Instruction to Keep Your Pen Moving.

The problem with social distancing and sheltering in place is that authors, book writers, and literary enthusiasts are unable to gather together and discuss craft and their work. Until now.

Mag Dimond, author of the #1 international best selling book BOWING TO ELEPHANTS, TALES OF A TRAVEL JUNKIE is changing the status quo with her creation “Writers Coming Together”. It’s an intimate author discussion series for book enthusiasts, writers, and lovers of narrative & craft.

Viewers and listeners will get inside the minds of one-of-a-kind, award-winning authors from around the world.

The series continues weekly each Thursday at 1:30 pm Pacific, 4:30 pm Eastern live at facebook.com/travelswithmag/

According to Dimond:

“The effects of COVID-19 are revealing something critical for authors & writers that’s critical to meditation and Buddhist practice. While you walk this path by yourself, you never have to walk it alone. That’s why I’m creating ‘Writers Coming Together’.”

Dimond will “talk shop” with authors. All discussions are free, open to the public, and take place on Thursdays.
