Writer’s House is a thriving residential community of student writers from UC Santa Cruz and, on Wednesday, 25th April, they will be playing host to prodigious young author, Michael Panush.
Twenty-Two years old, Michael Panush has distinguished himself as one of Sacramento’s most promising young writers. Michael has published numerous short stories in a variety of e-zines including AuroraWolf, Demon Minds, Fantastic Horror, Dark Fire Fiction, Aphelion, Horrorbound, Fantasy Gazetteer, Demonic Tome, Tiny Globule, and Defenestration.
Michael released his first novel, weird Western collection Clark Reeper Tales. He recently announced a multiple-book deal with Curiosity Quills Press, with the first book, The Stein & Candle Detective Agency, Vol. 1: American Nightmares, released on 18th March.
The event on the 25th of April will run from 7pm to 9pm Pacific Time, with Michael reading from a selection of his stories, followed by a signing. Furthermore, Mr. Panush will be hearing aspiring authors’ pitches at the end of the event, giving fellow writers a chance to have their works presented directly to Curiosity Quills Press. Authors interested in preparing a pitch beforehand are encouraged to read the publisher’s submission guidelines.
The event will be held in the Kresge Writing Center (in the Kresge Study Center downstairs and to the left), 600 Kresge Ct. Santa Cruz, CA 95064, so join us for an evening of paranormal mystery, b-movie monsters, hard-boiled detective noir – and even free refreshments!
