Emerging Writers Workshop: A Writer’s Best Practices
Monday November 6, 2017: 7:00pm to 8:45pm
Westgate Branch: West Side Room
Grade 6 - Adult
Writing is a solitary activity, but sooner or later, an author has to talk to other people. Whether meeting readers in a bookstore or a conference, or hanging out with fans (or potential fans) on social media, its important for writers to make a good impression. In this workshop, [https://alexkourvo.com/|Alex Kourvo] and [http://www.bethanyneal.com/|Bethany Neal] will share some memorable interactions with other authors, admit their own mistakes, and show you the best practices for navigating the world of writers and readers.
This is part of the monthly Emerging Writers Workshops, which offer support, learning, and advice for local authors. Each month, two weeks after the workshop, there is a meet-up where the instructors will read samples of your work and offer advice and assistance in a casual, supportive atmosphere. Do you have a completed manuscript? Consider submitting it to the library's imprint Fifth Avenue Press: [http://www.aadl.org/fifthavenuepress|fifthavenue.press].
