Breaking News: Autumn Writers Exhibition On Second life
October 24th – November 2nd
This is a must-do for any writer, poet, or reader. Jilly Kidd, a poet and host of the very popular SLCN.TV show Meet An Author, is organizing the Autumn Writers Exhibition. Jilly and her partner Hastings Bournemouth have cooked up a virtual writer’s extravaganza on Cookie Island on Second Life.
Jilly’s Press release:
After the success of the Autumn Writers' Exhibition last year we're making it a tradition and bringing it back. Last year we had more than 100 writers displaying their work for free and taking part in events and impromptu readings and music. Come along and enjoy the fun, which will end with fireworks and a main events week over Halloween.
There are three L$5,000 (Second Life dollars) competitions for best display, best poem, and best piece of prose under 2,000 words on the subject of Autumn.
This year the exhibition will be on two parcels of land next to the Written Word and INKsters areas on opposite corners of Cookie Island, joined by events in the Town Center. There's also plenty to see on this island dedicated to writers and creative people. Try out the magic carpet ride between the two towers.

Book events on Second Life are always a great time. They will have readings, book discussions, author interviews, movies, poetry events, book trivia, writer tips, open mic events where you can read your own work for others, and much more. This is a great event to meet authors at and if you are an author, it’s a great place to network. Come enjoy the events or peruse the writer tents. Lots of free goodies!
Come check out my tent (pictured above) and grab my free coffin podcast player to put on your own SL land.
I have been asked to host the Bookstacks Horror Book Discussion on November 2nd at 12pm PST. I’d love to have you come out and discuss horror books with me.
