On Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m., local blogger and writer Virgil Hervey will give a talk at the Yellow Springs Library on "Blogging for Writers." While some of the nuts-and-bolts aspects of blogging are likely to come up, especially during the question and answer period that will follow his talk, the focus will be less on "how to" and more on ways blogging can be relevant to the writing life.
Hervey is a past Assistant Director of the Antioch Writers' Workshop where he gave a similar talk this year. His stories, poems and articles have been published in over 40 small press publications, newspapers and online magazines. His short story "The Overall Picture" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2002. He has been a staff reporter for the Yellow Springs News, edited chapbooks and several literary magazines, and currently edits and writes for A Yellow Springs Blog. “Parking Spaces,” his first play was produced this summer as a part of the Corner Cone 10-Minute Play Festival and will be performed at the Cone again at 2:00 p.m. on Oct. 9 during the Street Fair festivities.
