Calling the aspiring authors out there!

  • Mar 27, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Given the fact we all have a shared love of books, when I met Mindy Gibbins-Klein (The Book Midwife®) recently - creating an event for the aspiring authors in our group, seemed like the natural thing to do

This is a special opportunity as Mindy has kindly agreed to come up from London to join us for an evening, to tell us more about the art of writing books.


What ever stage you are at : ideas, started but stuck, manuscript finished - there will be something for you.

Mindy, is best known as Founder of The Book Midwife®, international speaker, top book coach and leading UK writing and publishing strategist. http://www.bookmidwife.com/

Do you keep thinking or talking about writing a book?
Thoughts alone won’t make it happen! If you want to see your book in print, you need to make it a priority, make a plan, and obtain some skilful guidance to help you write the best possible book!

We will also be inviting the Stratford-upon-avon Wordsmith's group - so you will have the opportunity after Mindy's presentation, to either continue socialising or join the monthly local writers group in their meetup.

Join or login to comment.

    Thanks all for braving the cold and coming along last night. :)
    This was a new foray for us, and as soon as I sat down I had lots of thoughts of how I would have done things differently :)
    However for our first event with a guest speaker to give us an insight into their take on things, I hope you enjoyed it.
    Please feel free to drop me an email with any feedback / questions, so we can consider if we do events like this in the future x

    Was a shorter session than expected. Main purpose was more to inspire and get people writing if they were interested.

      Hi Pooja, thanks for your feedback, This was an additional meet up specifically on that topic, book club is 9th April (and non-fiction on 11t April) , which is a different longer format (in case you were expecting book club also?). & the Wordsmiths writers group held their writing meetup after the presentation, to continue the writing theme of the evening. hope that helps!

    The format for the evening will be the usual get together/social time as people arrive in the first 30 mins. Then a presentation by Mindy, and afterwards, the opportunity to join the local Writers meetup or take the opportunity to chat with fellow aspiring authors in the area.
