So, You Have a Great Story…My Journey from Page to Publishing

Whether you already have a story to tell or are thinking about writing one, author Annalisa Russo will describe her journey from the first word on the page to working with a publisher and what she learned in between. This class is designed as an overview of the writing process, the mechanics of writing, including organizing your writing, and planning your writing schedule. Participants will learn how to get their creative ideas down on paper, keep on track, and get to the publishing table. The PowerPoint presentation will also explain how to find an agent/publisher and what to expect after the signed contract. A Q & A session will conclude the presentation.
