'Flat Rock Together' writer is guest speaker at Brandy Bar

NC Writers Network and The Brandy Bar + Cocktails presents guest writer Bruce Holliday in the next In the Company of Writers program at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 14, followed by an open mic from 8-9 p.m. and the Chicago blues music of Mr. Jimmy.

Holliday’s been publishing his weekly digital newsletter Flat Rock Together about the people, places and events in and around Flat Rock since the summer of 2019. Without any formal affiliation with the Village, Holliday offers it every Sunday as a service to the community.

During his talk at The Brandy Bar, Holliday will discuss the challenges and remarkable stories that emerge with publishing a weekly newsletter about the community in which he resides. He will present how stories are gathered and the process of creating and distributing an online publication as well as share excerpts from a few of his favorite stories and personal essays.


Holliday works as the marketing and communications director for Interfaith Assistance Ministry crisis services and also does freelance website design. He serves on the Flat Rock Planning Board, as well as the Board of Directors for Flat Rock Playhouse and The Park at Flat Rock. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, trail running and ignoring yard work that should have been done about a month ago.
