If you want the dirt on the publishing business, present and future, this one's for you!
When: Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm *Please note time change from normal time*
Where: Bexley Public Library, 2411 E. Main Street, Bexley, OH 43209
Description: Margaret Quamme, book and culture critic for The Columbus Dispatch, is a Brown University Ph.D. (English) who has written, taught, and worked a "surprising number of food-related jobs" and has hobbies that include tai chi, kayaking, dance and walking, especially if it involves the quest for a good cup of coffee. As someone who has reported on the multitudinous whims and changes in the publishing industry over the last few years, Margaret is the perfect person to give us the dirt about publishing and share personal anecdotes about some of your favorite authors.
Lunch: Join us afterward for lunch at a local restaurant.
Don’t miss our May Program! Lara Baker-Morrish (Chief Prosecutor, City of Columbus) and Annie Murray (Chief Prosecutor, Director of the Domestic Violence and Stalking Unit, City of Columbus).
Join us as Lara and Annie cover a number of fun topics to help us make our writing more authentic: legal issues often misrepresented in television and books, working with the police, the details of building a case and proper procedure for prosecuting a case. Count on hearing fascinating anecdotes from the prosecutorial side.
Are you going nowhere with your story? Join our "I Killed It" Hard Deadlines Program and be held accountable for your writing goals.
Maybe you: • have too many ideas and don’t know which idea to pursue • don’t know where to begin because you keep changing components of your story in your head • would rather hold on to the hope & illusion of what your story could be than choose to making it real. Whatever the reason for you to be stuck, you don’t have to be alone any longer.
