—THE WASHINGTON POST

Made in L.A.: Stories from Local Authors About Chasing the Elusive Dream
Friday August 09 | 7:30PM - 9:30PM
The Made in L.A. indie author co-op presents contributors to the latest installment of their annual fiction anthology series, Made in L.A. Vol. 2: Chasing the Elusive Dream. Join a celebration of the indie spirit and the DIY publishing effort that puts forward L.A.-focused fiction by L.A.-based authors.
While the first volume was rooted in Los Angeles, this second volume focuses on goals, dreams, and the distant horizon. It explores the fantasies people carry with them to L.A., as well as the dreams Angelenos dream while surrounded by this vast and evolving city.
This anthology series showcases a diverse range of voices and genres. Like the City of Angels where these stories were born, nothing is off-limits. Literary or contemporary, fantasy or science fiction, each story in this volume invites you to view this urban landscape through a different lens.
This evening we'll talk about how writers can take charge of their own careers by sharing stories that connect with and inspire people in their communities. Contributors will read short excerpts of their stories and share the stories behind their stories.
