We are excited to introduce our newest KAC member: Julie Ann Baker Brin! She joins us from Park City, District 5.
We asked Julie a few questions so we could learn a bit about her.
Julie Ann Baker Brin (or Julie Brin … but NOT Julie Baker Brin, because my maiden name became my second middle name, just to confuse anyone with a database … or really anyone).
Wichita (technically: Park City, but USPS’s zip code lookup stubbornly insists it’s Wichita).
What kind of writing do you do?
Poetry-like substances, lyrics, and micro-stories for fun. (Meeting minutes for work … and for anyone with insomnia.)
If you would like to, please share information about writing projects you’ve completed or are currently working on.
I am honored to be amongst so many talented and experienced writers featured in Gretchen Eick and Cora Poage’s The Death Project: An Anthology for our Times, which was just published (ISBN: 978-1-7342272-6-0 paperback or 978-1-7342272-7-7 ebook) and whose net proceeds will fund frontline COVID-19 workers.
Do you have a website or a facebook page that you'd like us to share with other KAC members?
juliebrin.org (or juliebrin.com, but I’m a dot-org kinda gal).
Is there anything else you’d like other KAC members to know about you?
I just resigned from the classic rock cover band I’d fronted since 2009, in order to return to original writing and hopefully buy back my soul. (Also, I may be hopelessly addicted to parentheticals … and ellipses.)
What would you like to gain from your membership with KAC? (Networking and/or friendships with other writers; Entering the KAC writing contests; Information on the writing craft; Information on publishing; Information on promotion)
Yes, please. All of the above.
When Julie's name first showed up in my inbox, it sounded familiar. And that's because she placed in both the poetry and prose categories in the District 7 Writing Contest recently. Congratulations!
Please take a few minutes to visit Julie's creative and well-designed website and read some of her pieces.
