Nerd Nite #68

Trig or Treat

It’s a trick. There’s no math tonight. Join us on the last Thursday of Spocktober for Nerd Nite!

Julia Rose: How To Publish Your Personal Writing Without Fear

Writing is hard. Not writing and expressing yourself when you want to is even harder. If you aspire to cut the BS and get out of your own way, secretly hope you’re a writer, and have a book idea inside of you, this talk is for you!

Julia Rose is a writer, poet, dancer, and entrepreneur. She founded Hello, Writer in 2020 – a writing program for women and non-binary folks who are dying to express themselves through writing and need the skills, confidence, and accountability to press PUBLISH. She’s new to Edmonton and lives in Old Strathcona. She will gladly go for coffee with you on Whyte Ave.

She is a social entrepreneur who manages Black Owned Market Edmonton which kick-started her entrepreneurial spirit to later create Black Owned Makers, all while balancing a full-time job and active social life.
