Tampa Bay Writers Events

Moving here from Seattle, one of the most literate cities in the country, was quite a change (to say the least). Five and a half years later, I still crave the bookstores and interaction with writers and authors that is so easily found back in that gray, drizzly town.

I'll take Florida's sunshine any day, so the good news is that I'm digging up more and more writerly things to do around here. (The next thing on Tampa's much-needed list is Seattle's public transit system.)

Currently, the Tampa Jewish Book Festival is happening, with author events through the next week.

I've also heard about two upcoming writer's workshops.

When: November 13 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Cost: $90
