On February 5, the Sacramento branch of the California Writer’s Club is hosting a workshop called, Make Yourself Irresistable to Editors and Agents.
Steve Liddick, who is in his second year of organizing workshops for the club, has posted a notice to Craigslist and asked us to spread the news: http://sacramento.craigslist.org/cls/2146711302.html I’ll be happy to email the brochure upon request (click the gravatar for my email).
Times are 9:00-4:00, in the conference room of the Luau Gardens restaurant. This is the club’s regular meeting venue, has wi-fi, and is close to the intersection of all the Sacramento freeways. Steve said the presentation will be lively and enterataining, and everyone will have the option of a three minute, for-real pitch to one of the agents in attendance. Price is $99 for non-club-members, $85 for members.
Steve organized the all day blogging workshop last June that got me started in this endeavor. The California Writer’s Club also gives me a sense of connection to one of my writing ancestors – it was founded by Jack London. If you haven’t seen my post on a visit to his ranch, please look in the October 2010 archive.
If you do decide to attend, I’ll see you there.
