December 5, Meet Mary Flynn

Join the Florida Writers Foundation Zoom Mini-Conference on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 7 PM for a celebration of poets and authors. You will hear Mary Flynn, Joyce Sweeney, and the six winning authors of our Colors of the Holidays short works contests as they read their poems and prose.

We want short upbeat pieces to chase away the blues. Mary Flynn is no newcomer to happily-ever after stories. Mary worked for both Hallmark and Disney. To quote her website, “Mary’s hilarious “Confessions of a Hallmark Greeting Card Writer” continues to enjoy rave reviews with audiences everywhere, as she shares the ins-and-outs along with the mishaps behind the scenes at Hallmark. She also presents a fun and quirky “Peek Behind the Magic,” based on her years with Disney.”

Joyce Sweeney is a prolific writer and literary agent with The Seymour Agency. She is also my mentor. More about Joyce in my previous blogs.

The Florida Writers Foundation invites you to submit 1) a short piece of prose [1,000 words max]    OR    2) a poem [maximum 40 lines]
