Come early to sign up for Open Mic!

Alan Balkema spent the first three years of his retirement in Dublin with his Irish wife. He highly recommends the location for aspiring writers, as there’s something in the air. He developed a writing 
routine and enjoyed success. A monologue Let Me Share was performed at the Claremorris Fringe Festival, winning best actress and best director awards for the people involved. He’s also had stories
published in Flash Fiction World (online and print!) and Brilliant Flash Fiction (ditto). In his professional career he wrote and edited research reports. Storytelling is much more fun. A native of Romney, Indiana, he now resides in Bloomington. In addition to his e-book Decoration Day, he has also published Lightning Rod, another look into a dysfunctional family, and is currently working on a script for a mini-series on a premium channel.
