Learn to Market Your Work!

Everybody has something worth saying. This group discusses desires, accomplishments and challenges NOT in writing the book, but how to ...

Publish and MARKET your work. This Meetup takes your work to the next level!

We have hundreds of aspiring writers, and a few published authors, who attend each meeting. We learn about SELLING our products and services. We meet at 6:30 PM, the second Tuesday of every month. Please come and share your personal and professional experiences with us. We rank our members:

Author - are you published? Are a paid blogger? Please let us know. We post links to your books on our Members' Book Pages.

Editor - are you either working or have experience as an Editor/proof reader, etcetera?

Ghost Writer – Do you write and/or publish under a non-de plume?

Agent or Publisher? Please let us know.

Experienced - Do you have formal training? MFA? Creative Writing courses?

Writing Links Required

Authors with published articles or books must include links to their media pages (web sites, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.). Please post your writing sample on our discussion pages or on the Sample Writing thread.

Reviews Required

We are writers, we few hundred. While our avocation is publishing and marketing our work, our passion is our writing. We support each other. We help each other get started. Therefore, members must write a brief reviewing about how they know the author, what the book or article is about and why somebody might OR should BUY the article or book.

This is not a writing critique group. Barnes & Noble has an excellent one (Tampa Writers Alliance) that meets on second and fourth Wednesday nights. Colin is available for personal critiques (twelve years as a Professional Writer).

Introductions: We start off off our meetings by introducing ourselves: what are you writing (elevator pitch), why should somebody read or BUY your work?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
