Organizational meeting date set

Join me on a 12-month journey from concept to published page (or digital page, as you may choose.

Our organizational meeting will be held on Saturday, September 8th at 10:30am, at the Paul Smith Library, 80 Constitution Ave, Shrewsbury, PA  17361.

Daytime and evening writers’ groups will be forming during September.  Together, the groups will explore all aspects of the writing and self-publishing process.  All community members are welcome, and no experience is necessary.  The only requirement is a willingness to experiment and create something new.

Once participants are identified, members may choose to form smaller interest groups or develop a meeting schedule and locations that are mutually agreeable, or to share pages and information in person or online for group feedback.

Specific topics of interest will be discussed in large group meetings offered monthly at the library in Shrewsbury.  These topics may include:  Overview of the process; getting started; character and plot development; narrative voice and viewpoint; tension, momentum and climax; selecting a title; copy editing and revisions; formatting for print or digital distribution; cover art; publishing an eBook for free with Amazon’s Kindle; publishing a trade paperback for less thatn $250 with Amazon’s CreateSpace; and marketing your title online and in the real world.

Seasoned writers and publishing professionals are also invited to join the community and share expertise.  Contact me at dstevens@yorklibraries.org to coordinate involvement.

The culmination of the year-long project will be a series of Meet the Author visits and Book Signing events to be slated around the county during Fall 2013, featuring all the participating authors from the group.
