Rivers of Ink event gathers writers in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- The 4th annual Rivers of Ink - Readers and Writers Connect event brought together literature enthusiasts this weekend in Richland.

Saturday at the Richland Community Center, writers were invited to panel discussions featuring 25 local authors.

The program also included writers workshops, covering everything from genre writing to publishing.

"This is a really isolated profession. We spend a lot of time indoors talking to people in our heads. So anytime you get a chance to come out and talk to people that write and that love to write and have the same passion that you do, it's just a great opportunity," said Robert Dugoni, best selling author and event speaker.

The Richland Arts Commission sponsors the Rivers of Ink event and is always on the lookout for authors to speak and participate on the panels every year.
