We welcome Steve O’Keefe in support of his book, Set the Page on Fire: Secrets of Successful Writers

Set the Page on Fire: Secrets of Successful Writers is a funny, practical guide to the writing craft built around a four-year road trip interviewing hundreds of authors in the U.S. and Canada. It is loaded with hot tips for writing and getting published. Author Steve O’Keefe will read “In Praise of Manual Typewriters,” his ode to the “letter piano,” and answer questions from writers who want to get published.

Steve O’Keefe graduated from Michigan State University, where he was managing editor of The Red Cedar Review, before landing a job as a book editor for counterculture publisher, Loompanics Unlimited, in Port Townsend, Washington. Steve is the author of two textbooks on Internet Publicity and taught Internet Public Relations at Tulane University in New Orleans for more than a decade before hurricanes convinced him to relocate. Steve currently lives safely in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley where he runs the content marketing firm, Orobora, which hires dozens of writers from all over the world to generate content for clients. His wife, collage artist Deborah O’Keeffe, has won awards from Arts, Beats & Eats; the Crooked Tree Art Festival in Traverse City; and the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair.
