Writers Roundtable 

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

(Note: We’re Meeting the 3rd Tuesday this month)

from 6:30-7:30PM 

(inside the Coffee Press at Paseo Verde Library in Green Valley Ranch)

 

Topic: “Life, Literature and the Pursuit of Publication”

(Building the confidence to send your work out into the world!)

Do you have work that’s ready for a readership? Need an extra jolt of motivation to get you to send it out there? Join us at our next WSN Roundtable.  Bring in one story or essay you would like to see published in the coming months and be prepared to discuss it with the group. You’ll have the opportunity to read a passage, get feedback from your fellow writers and discuss target markets for your work. We look forward to seeing you for good coffee, great conversation and your next writing credit!

Moderated by Greg Blake Miller.

(free for WSN Members and first time guests / $5 non-members)

 

Also, for anyone looking to get more involved, boost their writing resume by joining the board, or simply share any programming ideas or other thoughts, arrive at the Roundtable an hour early (at 5:30PM) to sit in on our open Board Meeting!
