Lunch & Learn South
Join me at Opal Divine's in South Austin for a writer's lunch! This is meant to be a casual meet and greet, a way for people down south to have a place to hangout, get to know other writers in the area, and talk about anything writing and publishing. Stuck on a project? Questions about self-publishing? Bring 'em! Scheduled for 2pm so we can't start after the lunch rush is over. Since this is a restaurant, seating a large party will be very difficult and time consuming. If more than 6 people show, I suggest we split off into multiple tables. ABOUT THE HOST Matt aka M.G. Herron is an indie science fiction novelist based in Austin.

What we're about



Are you a writer, author, or blogger?

Are you interested in self-publishing a book?

Are you interested in finding an audience for your fiction or nonfiction?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you've come to the right place.

Join a group of indie authors twice a month to learn, discover, and create.

We talk about the craft of writing; how to find and work with an editor; how to format and distribute your books; trends in indie publishing; marketing tactics; platform and strategy; the leaders of self publishing in the 21st century; and much more.

Each meeting is structured around a specific topic, but there is always time for your questions, and a little chit chat over coffee too.

All indie authors, artists, wannabes, hacks, storytellers, and yarn-spinners welcome.

No experience necessary, but come prepared.
