Join the Write or Die writing and critique group for a panel of NY Times bestselling authors, local reporters, book store managers, and editors. This is a unique opportunity for aspiring authors to speak directly with individuals working within the world of publishing. Common questions aspiring authors ask: How do you get press? How do you get an agent? What do publishers want? How do I get my books into bookstores? Can I do all this on my own or an indie? These questions and more will be addressed by the speakers panel. WorD meetings are always free to attend and open to the public.
