<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. 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>
