Newport: “Turning No to Yes” with Jamie Duclos-Yourdon

June 18, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Portland author Jamie Duclos-Yourdon will discuss “Turning No to Yes” at the June 18 meeting of the Willamette Writers Coast Chapter. The free workshop takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Newport Library.

Turning No to Yes: Workshop

Duclos-Yourdon produced seven manuscripts before publishing his debut novel, Froelich’s Ladder, with Forest Avenue Press in August 2016. Speaking humorously and without a trace of bitterness, he will discuss his experience getting published, his working relationship with publisher Laura Stanfill, and how to remain upbeat in the face of rejection.

His short fiction has appeared in the Alaska Quarterly Review, Underneath the Juniper Tree, and Chicago Literati, and he has contributed essays and interviews to Booktrib.
