The Sunday Sessions
Are you a writer? Do you need motivation? Do you feel stuck in a rut? In
need of a nudge, inspiration, or information?
The Sunday Sessions are on the second Sunday of every month, and
encourage you to share this information with your writer friends. Any questions about
attending can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also seeking authors interested in presenting a mini-workshop
(about half an hour + Q&A) on writing as craft, publishing, marketing, promotion, social
media for authors, finding an agent, & other aspects of the writing journey. Please
contact Candace or Debbie at email@example.com for more information.
Why not join other writers to share tips about writing craft, publishing, and promotion.
