Online PR News – 08-May-2020 – San Francisco, California – The problem with social distancing and sheltering in place is that authors, book writers, and literary enthusiasts are unable to gather together and discuss craft and their work. Until now.

Mag Dimond, author of the #1 international best selling book BOWING TO ELEPHANTS, TALES OF A TRAVEL JUNKIE is changing the status quo with her creation "Writers Coming Together". It's an intimate author discussion series for book enthusiasts, writers, and lovers of narrative & craft.

According to Dimond, "the effects of COVID-19 are revealing something critical for authors & writers that's critical to meditation and Buddhist practice. While you walk this path by yourself, you never have to walk it alone. That's why I'm creating 'Writers Coming Together'."

In the subsequent weeks after Jack Kornfield, Dimond will be "talking shop" with other authors, including, but not limited to:

? Brooke Warner, May 14 — publisher, author of Green-light Your Book, What's Your Book" TEDx speaker, and columnist for Publishers Weekly
