September is our 1 year Anniversary!
It's incredible that it has already been a year and at the same time it seems like this group has been around for years.
We just reached over 400 members this week. Amazing.
The events are still going great and in opinion, they are getting better and better.
The big news for this month is that we are having a party for our one year anniversary: http://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Writers-Community/calendar/14584736/?from=list&offset=0
This event will be a social/fun event. Let's hangout and have fun.
I am starting to see more and more collaborations between members. People are helping each other with editing, cover design and even co-writing.
This all is very exciting to me. I am super happy to be a part of this group. We are doing great things and plenty more is to come.
The workshops keep filling up each month and people are really moving forward with their projects.
There are only 3 spots left for Promote and Sell Your Book: http://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Writers-Community/calendar/14464782/?from=list&offset=0
There is only 1 spot left for Build Your Website: http://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Writers-Community/calendar/14578992/?from=list&offset=0
I am still looking at different ways to get a permanent office space for our group to have workshops, events and co-writing space.
Here are some interesting points of view about what is going on with the publishing world. I don't agree with all that they say, but they have great points to think about.http://therumpus.net/2010/02/presto-book-o-why-i-went-ahead-and-self-published/http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2010/08/23/seth-godin-and-print-publishing/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+timferriss+(The+Blog+of+Author+Tim+Ferriss
Please get the word out to anyone that would be interested in and find value in our group as we create the new world of writing and publishing.
See you soon,
P.S. Looking for: Historian to take photos and video of events. Let me know if you are interested.
