SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT OUR UPCOMING MARCH WORKSHOP:
Finish Your Book in Three Drafts - Writing Workshop with Stuart Horwitz
Have you ever asked yourself while writing: How many drafts is this going to take? It doesn’t seem like such a question would have an answer but Stuart Horwitz proposes it does: – and that the answer is three, provided you approach each draft in the right spirit, and know what action steps to take between drafts. This presentation will discuss the best outlook and direction for each of the three drafts so that you can increase your efficiency, satisfaction, and engagement with both your writing process and your final product.
Stuart Horwitz is flying out from Rhode Island - this is one meeting you won't want to miss, but you must sign up: contact Workshop 9:45 – 12:45. $35 members, $45 non-members. Reservation deadline: noon, Wednesday March 8. Contact Robin at email@example.com or leave a message at: 925-933-9670 for reservations.
