On Friday, September 18th, come chat with Lily Hansen, author of the local talent-focused book Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations, during the week's installment of The Skillery's Office Hours.
About Office Hours:
On Friday mornings, we invite Skillery members and friends in for an educational component we call Office Hours. Each week, a local or visiting pro — from content creators to PR veterans to busy shop owners — will meet, greet, share valuable biz wisdom and answer your questions, in a casual group setting. It’s our weekly get together with local professionals, and you’re invited.
About the Host:
A native Chicagoan, Lily Clayton Hansen always wanted to be a writer. After writing for her university newspaper, she headed to Nashville -- based on a gut feeling that it was the right place for her -- to pursue her passion full-time. She quickly began writing for Nashville Lifestyles, Native, and Nashville Arts and discovered her love for conversation while interviewing subjects for magazines. The idea for her first book, Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations, was born as she embarked on her own creative journey and sought the advice of Nashville’s most innovative entrepreneurs. Containing interviews with the likes of Mike Wolfe, the creator of American Pickers, Patrick Carney, drummer for The Black Keys, Sean Brock, award-winning author and chef/owner of Husk, Yazoo Brewery founder Linus Hall, Word of Mouth: Nashville Conversations is more than a testament to Nashville’s unique mix of innovative talent, it’s also a reflection of the collaboration that exists within the creative community. As author Hansen recalls, “Each subject was open and willing to talk and the amount of helpful advice offered was unbelievable.”
As a compendium of insight and wisdom shared by those who have pursued their dreams, Word of Mouth presents stories that young and old alike should hear as they embark on their own creative journey. With her life enhanced in so many ways by the amazing people she has interviewed, Lily continues to write in Nashville, Tennessee. Read more of Lily's work at www.nashvillewordofmouth.com
