My place of employment hosts a program called “Coffee Time.” Employees get to address their co-workers in a public forum over coffee about a hobby or work-related topic.
On a recent afternoon, I chose to be a “Coffee Time” presenter and spoke about my adventures in writing.
I displayed copies of literary journals that have published my short stories and essays. I shared with them what inspired me to write my stories and handed out copies of my work so people could see the finished product.
Also, in a drawing I gave away a copy of Chicken Soup for The Soul: The Dating Game, in which one of my stories–“Short Distance Romance”– was published.
“Coffee Time” offered a great opportunity to let more people know about my writing and get more practice for future book events.
