Tonight: Martin J. Smith

from the OC Register:

Martin J. Smith, editor of Orange Coast magazine, will speak on writing, his magazine and how to create a well-crafted essay when he appears Monday, March 16 as the second guest in a newly launched Orange County writers’ series.

Pen On Fire: A Speaking Series debuted in February with an appearance by mystery novelist T. Jefferson Parker, talking about his new book, “The Renegades.”

It’s the creation of Barbara DeMarco-Barrett, author of a book on writing titled “Pen On Fire” and host of the KUCI-FM talk show “Writers on Writing.”

Smith, who in addition to editing Orange Coast is a novelist and a journalist with stints at the Orange County Register and Los Angeles Times in the past, will talk about writing in general, but also how to make essays “personal, yet universal.”

The event starts at 7 p.m. Monday at the Newport Beach Tennis Club, 2601 Eastbluff Dr., Newport Beach.

Tickets are $15 which includes snacks. Because space is limited, tickets must be purchased in advance. To do so, e-mail DeMarco-Barrett at to make reservations and arrange to pay via Paypal.
