The Greater Cleveland Writers Meet up Group Monthly Meetup

  • May 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

<p>We'll introduce new visitors, and do a quick recap of what every one is working on. Bring samples of your 'work' to share, or a question, a struggle, .... this group has a ton of experience, or at least a ton of empathy. Also, this is NOT just for children's fiction. Any writer is welcome, and genre. Sci-Fi, Fiction, Fantasy, Technical, Non-Fiction, you name it.... We will stay in the main area of books, but can also discuss freelancing to magazines, zines, blogging for fun and profit, you name it. Create a 30 second elevator speech on your work, and why some one should publish it.... and where? If you don't know what an elevator speech is, that's ok, once you join you can access an elevator speech template in our files section! Most importantly, what are you willing to do about getting published? Or what does being published mean to you. You'd be surprised how many writers never intend to make money from their writing, but just want to be published.
I'll also discuss what I find are the top 5 reasons most writers never publish, if things get dull, and so far they never have!. I will also cover 5 tactics you can use to get published.
Our home is at Vision 21 which is at: 1495 Warren Road, Lakewood, OH 44107.&nbsp; Questions or concerns email me [masked] Size is limited to 35 people. If you RSVP 'yes' please show up because we reserve space . I request every one who joins us to kick in $5, or bring an item to share. If things are tight, come anyway. These venues open their doors to us. Please be considerate. I know budgets are tight, but this keeps the venue eager to see us again next month.</p>

    I too, wish to commend Milan, as well as the other readers, for sharing their stories. Kathie Dice continues to inspire as well, for stories of personal victory and inspiration. In time, I hope to write my own story of personal triumph, but for now, I have stuck to the animals in my life who have provided love and inspiration. You see, in my life, my story includes the premise: the more people I meet, the more I like my cat....present company excepted, of course!

    Great evening with many new faces! We heard about a variety of publishing options, several published authors were in attendance with their products. We talked about a new service for making your own audio books. Thanks to all the writers who read, and the feedback from the audience. I want to thank Milan personally, for sharing. It was the best compliment I've ever received. Keep coming Milan.
