    Young Emerging Authors Book Launch Celebration
    Tuesday,
    5:00PM to 6:00PM
    @ Mechanics Hall Ballroom, 519 Congress Street, Portland, ME

    We have been waiting a whole year for this event! Please join The Telling Room’s 2015-2016 Young Emerging Authors as we launch their brand new books at the annual YEA BOOK RELEASE PARTY!

    This year's titles by the YEA fellows include Yellow Apocalpse, a short story collection by Madeline Curtis, The Sky at 5AM​, a novel by Liam Swift, Untranslatable Honeyed Bruises, a poetry collection by Amanda Dettmann, and The Seed of a Flower, an illustrated novel by Maryam Abdullah.

    This event is free and open to the public. See Maryam create illustrations for her novel before your very eyes at the "Artist-in-Residence studio" ballroom installation, and enjoy the fellows' readings, a Q&A, a book signing, and light refreshments at a reception afterward. 

    The Young Emerging Author (YEA) Fellowship is a Telling Room writing and publishing program that offers successful applicants the chance to plan, write, edit, design, and publish their own books in a single year.

    This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the program--all future applicants are especially invited to attend. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis from now thru September. Click here for more info about the program.
