64 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, Feb. 24 - Monday, Feb. 27, 2006 Rolling Stone editor to participate in writers' conference Erik Hedegaard, a contributing editor for Rolling Stone Magazine will be joining the cast of over thirty authors, editors and publish- ers who will be arriving in Dewey Beach on March 3-4 to participate in the second annual "Writers At the Beach: Pure Sea Glass" writ- ing conference. Hedegaard, who began his writ- ing career at the Delaware Coast Press in Rehoboth Beach, will be joining former colleague, Terry Plowman, publisher and editor of Delaware Beach Life and Kessler Burnett of Chesapeake Life Magazine in a conversation with participants about the genre of magazine writing. The discussion will include everything from nuts and bolts information about how writing features for magazines differs from writing features for newspa- -pers, to how magazine editors determine what stories to run. The panelists will share, as well, their own experiences getting started in the business. For Hedegaard, this experience includes the story of how, after graduating from Columbia's cre- ative-writing program, he landed a job as an editorial assistant at Rolling Stone in 1981, where his ftrst assignment was an interview with Ozzy Osbourne. "It was in some hotel, and he was wearing a bathrobe," recalls Erik. "It was shortly after he'd bit- ten the head off the dove. And my recorder failed. It was awful, my first time out in the field." We're really excited about Erik's joining us, '' said conference director, Maribeth Fischer, who had invited Hedegaard to the con- ference months before, but only confirmed with him this past weekend. "Apparently, Erik was on assignment, and he lost track of time, so when he phoned he was very apologetic, wondering if it was too late to help out. 'I laughed,' Fischer says. "Too late? Erik is bringing so much to this event just by being here. And like all the other authors, he's not get- ting paid, he's traveling here (from his home in Rhode Island) on his own dime for a cause-- raising money for the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation--about which he probably knows very little. It continues to amaze me this kind of generosity." As for it's being too late, Fischer says it didn't take her long to disabuse Hedegaard of that notion. In addition to the Friday afternoon panel discussion on Magazine writing, Hedegaard will join fiction writer, Colleen Curran, author of Whores on the Hill; memoirist, Nancy Kruse whose tentatively titled, On My Hands and Knees: What I Learned from Having Sex" is forthcoming from Random House in 2007; and poet John Hoppenthaler ( Lives of Water) on a Saturday afternoon "Writing About Sex" panel. He'll be joining Fischer, novelist Robert Bausch, Simon & Schuster editor Cherise Davis, and Tom Viall, CEO of the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation at an author dinner to which conference participants (or the public) can register to attend, and he'll be reading a piece he wrote about smoking cigarettes with John Mellencamp the da.y after Mellencamp had a heart attack at the Saturday night Gala reading, which is also open to the public.
