What we're about

This group is for people interested in the various events that take place at The Den (classes, release parties, write-ins, etc.). All are welcome to join!

PLEASE NOTE: This is an actively curated group. This means that, if you do not attend an event within two weeks of becoming a member, you will be removed from the group. The Den offers three weekly and one bi-weekly event on a standard basis. One-off events such as seminars and book signings will take place and be announced on Meetup as well. This means that you have no less than six opportunities to show your face at The Den before being removed, so you've got plenty of chances to do so.

Hope to see you soon!

Shut Up Write Now

The Den

A small group of writers will meet at The Den by Volo Press and work on their projects in a quiet space. Snacks and drinks will be available for sale. Noise-canceling headphones are encouraged for those who need complete silence. Please refrain from bringing children or pets. If you cannot attend for at least 2 of the 3 hours, we ask that you RSVP to a different session when you will have more time to devote to your manuscript. "No shows" may be removed from the group. Please change your RSVP if your plans change.

Self-Publishing 101

The Den

$29.00

David Oyedepo: $150,000,000 J. K. Rowling: $1,000,000,000. Paulo Coelho: $50,000,000 These are the kind of net worths that are possible for authors around the world. But waiting for a Big Five publisher to read, accept, and agree to publish your manuscript can take years (and cost you as much as 90% of your royalties--OUCH!). Meanwhile, you could have self-published an entire series of books and started earning passive income in the same amount of time. But self-publishing seems overwhelming to many. And it can be if you don't have the right guidance. 7-time self-published author Tenesha Curtis (T. L. Curtis) owns Volo Press and offers this 90-minute course to help you do the following: 1. Figure out if self-publishing is right for your career goals and lifestyle. 2. Understand what self-publishing actually entails. 3. Determine the best way for you to get started. Course Agenda 8:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.: Drinks, snacks, and mingling. 8:15 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.: Lecturette on self-publishing. 9:00 p.m. - 9:30:p.m.: Q and A session. Location Across the street from QT there is a parking lot with an electronic sign. Turn into this lot. Park. Walk to XHale City and go up the stairs next to it. Turn right and walk down to the second suite on your left (205).

12-month Manuscript Workshop

The Den

$49.00

You've got work / school / kids / health problems / romantic issues / any old excuse that is keeping you distracted from your dream of becoming an author. We want to put an end to that! This workshop will help you walk out the door with a concrete plan in hand for how you can get your manuscript completed in twelve months or less. NO EXCUSES! Please come ready with a book idea (fiction and non-fiction are both welcome!). If you have a planner that you use, it would be helpful to bring that or use your phone calendar to set up your lifestyle-specific milestones.
