Suzette Martinez Standring, a popular workshop leader at the Oklahoma City meeting, has announced a new book project. “The Height of Power: Petite Women Speak of Stature” is about women, 5′ 3″ and under, who successfully navigate the world at armpit level.
Standring said she captured the spirit of the book in an essay which is now a finalist in a competition sponsored by the Florida Writers Association. You may read the essay at http://www.readsuzette.com/. Winners will be announced at the FWA conference at Lake Mary, Fla., October 22-24.
Standring, a former president of NSNC, is the author of “The Art of Column Writing: Insider Secrets from Art Buchwald, Dave Barry, Arianna Huffington, Pete Hamill and Other Great Columnists.” She recently launched a bi-monthly cable TV show, “It’s All Write With Suzette”, in Milton, Mass.
