The Scottsdale Society of Women Writers will meet 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Panera Bread at Gainey Village, 8777 N. Scottsdale Road, No. 302.
Guest for the meeting is Dr. Laura Bush, author, editor and publishing consultant. Bush is committed to transforming the world through mission-driven books. In 2012, she founded Peacock Proud Press, an independent book publishing company that empowers authors to change the world with their words. With a Ph.D. in English from Arizona State University and more than 30 years of teaching people how to write, Bush has guided hundreds of speakers, entrepreneurs, corporate and community leaders and memoirists to write and publish nonfiction books.
Her own book, “Faithful Transgressions in the American West: Six Twentieth-Century Mormon Women’s Autobiographical Acts” (Utah State University Press, 2004) is a work of literary criticism that grew out of her doctoral studies in memoir writing. She has published non-scholarly and scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals.
Bush will discuss the core principles of the writing process and how she applies them to ghostwriting memoirs and hybrid business-related books for her clients at Peacock Proud Press (peacokproud.com).
