West Valley Writers Workshop Monthly Meetup

  • Sep 1, 2012 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello Fellow ink Slingers!

This meeting will be on September 1. We tried to change it due to the holiday weekend, but were unable to get the room. We'll be meeting from 9:30 to 12:30 at the Avondale Civic Center Library.

As the library does not open until 10:00, we will enter through the northernmost door on the parking lot side of the library. Access will start at 9:15.

Join or login to comment.

    Unbelievable diversity and great structure. "Mr. Duckles Rocks" Does anyone know how to view the agents bios for the upcoming conference?

    August 7, 2012

    • Bob D.

      Go to http://www.AvondaleWr...­, or if you are in the website, pull down the "Conference" tab and click on "Agent Pitch Slam."

      Wait till you join us at the conference. You will think you did some serious time traveling. We are putting together a conference to take your career through the roof! Best of luck with the agent you choose.

      We will give you the red carpet treatment... As soon as we locate the carpet! You will enjoy the group I am sure.

      August 27, 2012

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      We will make all efforts to talk more about magazine possibilities.

    Looking forward to meeting you all !
    I love photography and have written a book on the arts... Clowning, balloon twisting, magic, games, etc.

    Sorry I was not able to make it to ths meeting. I was truly looking forward to meeting everyone, however I had a family issue come up that needed my attention. Hoping to make it to next months meeting though.

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      We will have a meeting in October. See you that first Saturday.

    Really enjoyed my first meeting of the group.
    I just finished chapter 7 of my first book and would love some feedback from anyone who would care to read a few pages. The working title is "The Dresden File: Unearthing an 18th century musical genius" and is the result of my research and a thirty year quest.

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      David, I am glad you enjoyed the meeting. For the moment I am working only on the anthology to be released during our conference of Nov 3rd. I will have to abstain from reading the pages. This does not mean I will not read them in the future. Remember to register to join us at the conference. You may want to consider pitching one of our agents. They are good, nationally known. You will need an elevator pitch, a synopsis is also a good idea. If you have these a query letter will be breeze. Welcome to the group.

    Informative, encouraging and interesting.

    I found it very informative. I only wish I could make next month's meeting.

    Agree that the presentation was interrupted too much and the topic got lost. I was very interested in this topic. It would also be nice if side conversations did not occur; people might think they are quiet but voices carry & it gets distracting. If the group continues to be this large, we will need to rearrange the room so everyone can see the screen and so we can hear each other. I usually leave these meetings with some nugget of useful information, and today was no exception, but it was frustrating that the presentation got so off-topic and there were so many distractions.

    Excellent! Our first time and the discussions and presentation was full of information. The group had a lot of electricity and enthusiasm. We are looking forward to future attendance.

  • donna b.

    What a huge group! Maybe we're getting too successful. I agree with the fact that the presentation was interrupted so much. I had a hard time keeping track of the information she was providing. And it was important information - I'm going to her pages online to see what I can pick up there.

    September 1, 2012

  • David W.

    Excellent presentation. I felt for Patti because she was interrupted too many times and lost control of the meeting. She had so much valuable information that I would rather have heard her speak instead of being sidetracked by seemingly personal or unrelated questions. Please invite her again.

  • Myrna F.

    Sorry, as I was adding to our profile, I lost my internet connection and wasn't able to finish my text. Will be there Saturday and look forward to the meet up.

    August 28, 2012

    • Eveline Horelle D.

      if you lost your internet connection you will have to write something (500 words or less) would you believe, it was an assignment. See you Saturday!

    Hi Everyone, have missed the last several meetings due to knee surgery and other family matters. I am excited to be getting back into the routine of coming to the workshop. I've missed it. I learn so much at our meetings.

    August 26, 2012

  • Eveline Horelle D.

    Folks, the anthology we have been waiting for is coming along. 99% of all edits DONE. Formatting will be next and off to print we go! Those of you who forgot the mail, you have Bob or my address. I have been reading some AWESOME works of your pens. Thanks for allowing me to be part of all this. NOW go pull down the "Conference" tab and see what is going on.
