Book Signings

Did you know that an author’s signature increases the value of books for collectors? That’s why Rose had been happy to appear at book signings for her publications. Not only will book lovers and authors benefit from these events, but also bookstores. Book signings also help other events increase their interest in local authors. Moreover, they allow writers to connect with their fans and answer their questions.

Workshops & Programs

Rose Klix presents “What Do Poetry Judges Want?” at the Rapid City Public Library, South Dakota

Rose was also a fan of attending prose and poetry workshops. At these gatherings, she loved to provide presentations that were enjoyable and informational. Her most recent presentation, “What Do Poetry Judges Want?” explains what judges are looking for when they critique poems. Her advice was also useful for approaching editors. She also discussed her experiences as a contestant and judge. Rose successfully presented this workshop at the Rapid City Public Main Library in South Dakota, the Halls Branch Library in Knoxville, Tennessee, and as a PST-NE program. She also presented a comprehensive program about the Poetry Society of TN and the Lost State Writers Guild.

Poetry & Prose Judging

Rose has often judged poetry contests for PST. She used her experience as an award-wining, published poet and writer to review poetry and prose for competitions. Rose was selected as a judge in the annual National Federation of Poetry Societies (NFSPS) competition. Rose organized and selected judges for the Appalachian Fair’s first poetry contest and the Sesquicentennial (150-year) Johnson City, TN celebration poetry competition. Rose recently judged the Poetry Society of SD chapbook contest. She also assisted in compiling, editing, and proofreading the PST annual anthology of contest-winning poems in TN Voices.

Readings & Speaking Events

Rose Klix reads her poetry on the steps of the Johnson City Public Library, Tennessee during a Blue Plum Festival.

Rose enjoyed any opportunity to connect with her readers, share excerpts from her books, and meet fellow authors. For this reason, she was open to invitations for readings and speaking engagements at local libraries and colleges in Tennessee. Rose also made public appearances at open mic nights and events hosted by writing and poetry groups.
