The Writers Journey: Life is like a River

Feb 08, 2017 06:52AM
Writers by the Sea invites you to wade into the memoir-writing waters of award-winning author, Vic DiGenti. According to DiGenti, in writing the story of our lives - biography or memoir - think of our lives as a meandering river with a starting and ending point. Each major turning point is a stepping-stone amidst waters that bubble and boil around it. Each stone marks an important life-changing event. Writers by the Sea welcomes all writers at 6 p.m. for announcements and introductions at no charge. For those who prefer to attend only the 6:30 p.m. presentation, please enter quietly and be seated by 6:20 p.m. The program is held at the Fernandina Beach Library at 24 North 4th Street.

About The Author Vic DiGenti's career in broadcasting and special events turned to his first love — writing - after he produced the Jacksonville Jazz Festival for eight years. His three traditionally published, award-winning Windrusher novels preceded his leap into the hard-boiled mystery/suspense field. Using the pen name Parker Francis, Vic wrote three novels in the Quint Mitchell Mystery series and a short story collection Ghostly Whispers, Secret Voices. Lately, he’s worked as a ghostwriter and biographer. Vic serves as Executive Vice President for the Florida Writers Association, FWA’s Regional Director for NE Florida, and group leader of the Ponte Vedra Writers, and Faculty Chair for the 2017 FWA Conference.
