We all know that Seattle is a literary town.
But do you know about Seattle Writes? This great program supports local writers through classes, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city. This spring, the Seattle Public Library offers 25 free writing classes and programs that are open to everyone. No excuses!
We’re psyched to be a part of Seattle Writes this year, offering our popular Secrets of a Successful Book Proposal workshop on April 3 from 2-4pm at the Central Library (downtown) and on May 1 from 2-4pm at the Queen Anne Library. We hope you’ll join us for these motivating free talks. Even if you’ve come to our classes before, this will be a great refresher to help you whip that proposal into shape and get it out the door.
But wait, there’s more! Spring 2016 Seattle Writes faculty includes Kathleen Alcala (essays), Nancy Kress (science fiction), Rose Lerner (historical romance), Claudia Castro Luna (poetry), Donna Miscolta (fiction), Nancy Rawles (fiction/dialogue), Ingrid Thoft (mystery), as well as a series of writing workshops presented in partnership with Hugo House. In addition to those featuring your truly, there will be publishing and marketing classes with Martha Brockenbrough (query letters/synopsis), Beth Jusino (marketing), and Sasquatch Publishing (behind the scenes look at the publishing process). Check out the full schedule here. Hope to see you around the library!
