The fourteenth edition of the biennial literary anthology of the English-speaking Geneva Writers’ Group will be launched in the Common Room (next to the parking lot) at Webster University on Saturday, September 16, 2017. With poetry and prose from more than 40 writers representing 15 countries, this volume celebrates the creative, international community of 250 writers established in 1993 by Susan M. Tiberghien with a few friends. The launch includes an informal reception at 5 p.m. with selected readings. All are welcome.

This year, the theme of “fragile states” was selected to inspire writing by people who have created lives in places far from their “roots.” This reality was the impetus for the title Offshoots that was inspired by the vigorous shoots of plane trees sprouting each spring along the lakeside quays of Geneva.

“Our writers bring a remarkable range of experience when it comes to the challenge of adaptation,” said this edition’s American editor-in chief, Patti M. Marxsen. “We hoped the theme would lead to some fascinating perspectives and we were not disappointed!”

Lisa Cirieco-Ohlman, publisher of Know-it-all passport®, explains, "I have dabbled in Christmas markets for years selling various creations ranging from cookie mixes in jars to painted rocks, and I know how hard it is when you have to pay for a table AND sell your wares all day. At this pop up shop vendors leave their creations and I will be there to sell for them. The shopping center boasts a well-trafficked area that will reach many more clients. Vendor's are enthused to test the market and get feedback as well as share their creations! Isn’t that why we make them in the first place? To share?

"This is a fun way of being unified and supportive doing what we love… together we can make it work… the whole is greater than the sum of its parts! "

With around 50 different vendors selected to participate out of 97 requests, clients searching for the unusual, creative, and fun gifts for the holiday season will surely find what they are looking for. Come along to browse, chat, meet up with friends, and buy! Of course, our book will be selling there too in case you need to get a copy.
