Month: March 2015

Thank you, Lorraine!

Thank you so much, Lorraine, for your presentation on strategic self-publishing. Presenting to a full house of authors can be pretty intimidating! We all ended up with a lot of think about and how we wanted to approach self-publishing–if that fit our goals.

Thursday Meeting – March 26th

Strategic Self-Publishing

With Lorraine Paton

In this era of publishing, it is easy to write a book and self-publish it–perhaps too easy, because self-publishing isn’t just about writing. By self-publishing, you are going into business, so it is good to have a plan! In this workshop, Lorraine will share some of her research on how to self-publish strategically, which is derived from wisdom shared on the many writing forums and loops she follows. People are succeeding in meeting their goals, and this workshop might help you do the same. She’ll also share some results from her own publishing endeavors.

Saturday Workshop – March 14

Editing is Re-Vision

With Jessica Corra

We’ll look at common tools for editing at the macro level of the novel and how to utilize them with intentionality, based on the analogy of the potter or sculptor, from scenes to theme. This will not be a proof-reading workshop; we will be focused on big picture aspects and how to approach the novel.
