August 18th Speaker: Nancy Wagner

What to Pack for the Writer’s Journey

Nancy Wagner (aka Hailey North) will share resources and techniques garnered during her twenty-plus years of the writing life.

Nancy began writing while employed as a “game show lawyer” for NBC Studios. Tired of hearing lawyers weren’t creative, she quit her job and typed “Chapter One” (not the chapter, just the heading!). That book became Two Sisters, the first of two fiction titles from Avon Books.

Nancy is also the USA Today bestselling author of eight romantic comedies, written under her Hailey North pen name and published by HarperCollins. She entered the world of indie publishing with her 2017 release The Right Kind of Crazy.

About meganbates

Hello! My name’s Megan, and I’m a young writer and graphic designer. I graduated from Loyola University a year ago, and during my time as an undergraduate, I had the privilege to do a study abroad in Ireland. I fell in love with traveling—meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and finding unique places to inspire my creativity. But like many people, student loans and other life expenses are keeping this post-grad tied at home. (For now, at least!) Luckily for me, my hometown of New Orleans offers a lot of awesome opportunities for staycations. But I also want more obscure adventures, things beyond iconic events and places like Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, and the French Quarter. If you’re a local like me, you love them, but you’ve done them. So, what else is there? That’s my goal—to seek out fresh or little known places both in and outside New Orleans area.
