Writers in BA on Radio Nacional Argentina!


Check out Writers in BA on Radio Nacional Argentina! Writers in Buenos Aires members Donigan Merritt, Sharon Haywood, and me (Maryann Ullmann) were interviewed today at the Feria del Libro for Radio Nacional’s English-language program for Radiodifusion al Exterior to air TOMORROW, MAY 5th at both 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. (probably in the second half of the show, 3:30 & 11:30). Listen on-line at: to hear your fellow expat writers ramble on and make fools of us all.

If any of you have websites or blogs that you have not yet added to the Writers in BA blog and you want me to add them, let me know ASAP as there will surely be some extra hits tomorrow after the interview airs…so don’t get missed just because you were wallowing in your slovenly self-pitying writers’ procrastination…speaking of which, I have *finally* launched my own website:, so if I can do it, believe me, you can do it.

Panel: “How to Form and Maintain a Writer’s Group”

Tuesday, May 5th, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
At the Feria del Libro, La Rural Exhibition Hall, by Plaza Italia in Palermo
Location: Sala A. Storni, White Pavilion
Participating: Amanda Fernandez, Katharine Jones, Tara Sullivan, Sharon Haywood, Ambi Alexander, and Maryann Ullmann
Description: Many writers strengthen their craft by participating in writing groups, which differ in structure from the local "Taller Literario" format.

(panel led in Spanish)

I was going to have a look at your new blog, Maryanne, but got a note that it is for "invited readers only," so apparently that lets me out. I did mention the interview on my blog this afternoon.

I am also curious to know who is doing the classes in writing that you mention, and how they are to be conducted. Any information?

It was kind of fun today, don't you think?

Hi Donigan,

Yeah, the radio thing was fun! Not too shabby. The classes I believe are going to be run by Tara Sullivan and Katharine Jones, for more info best to visit their blog or write to them directly...and as far as my "blog" goes I deleted that one as I decided to use google sites to format my website instead of blogger, so its just my website at, no blog, not much of a blogger...
