This month, Janine Kovac is the author of Spinning: Choreography for Coming Home, a memoir about the death of a career but the birth of miracle twins. A former ballet dancer and software engineer, she is a founding member of the writing group Write on Mamas and a contributing editor of the anthology Mamas Write: 29 Tales of Truth, Wit, and Grit. In 2016 she was awarded the Elizabeth George Foundation Fellowship from Hedgebrook. The following year she co-founded Moxie Road Productions, a consulting firm that helps women bring their ideas into the world.
Thais will be on a panel discussion around PR "secrets" and the careful balance between the humble-brag, the annoying boast, and effective self-promotion.

Birthing a Book, Having a Baby: Learn the Truth Behind the Metaphor!
Three debut San Francisco area authors and mothers read from their work and discuss the commonalities, and stark differences, between birthing a book and having a baby. Their diverse writing (memoir, women’s fiction, and literary fiction) and childbirth journeys will address the challenges, possibilities, and humor in both childbirth and book publication. The panel will be moderated by a member of WriteOnMamas, a nonprofit community of women (and men!) that fosters a friendly and supportive atmosphere for writers of all genres and experience levels.
