Gemini Ink Writers Conference


Gemini Ink, grown into a dynamic and important literary organization from a small volunteer reading series for local writers, has been a key player in the San Antonio literary milieu since its founding in 1997. Steadfast in its mission to “help people create and share the human story,” Gemini Ink, with its workshops, classes, readings, outreach and mentorship programs, is a catalyst of inspiration and connection for local readers and writers alike. In keeping with its trend of ever-broadening the scope of its impact, Gemini Ink presents its inaugural Writers Conference this weekend. In addition to a wide array of panels and workshops ($75-$150), the conference includes several free offerings, including an opening reception at host venue El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel (5:30-7:30pm Thu, 110 Lexington Ave.), an open-air reading with Janet Kaplan, Tim Z. Hernandez, Bryce Milligan, Wendy Barker and Andrea Vocab Sanderson at Viva Tacoland (7-11pm Fri, 103 W. Grayson St.), a book fair with author signings at El Tropicano (10am-6pm Sat) and a cocktail hour and after party with a cash bar, light fare and readings from Reyna Grande, Tim Seibles, Barbara Ras and Laurie Ann Guerrero in the Coates Chapel at the Southwest School of Art (6-10pm Sat, 300 Augusta St.).
