Writers Salon – Break Into Publishing Panel
Jul 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Writers Salon - Break Into Publishing Panel @ CANO

Libby Cudmore – Journalist & mystery novelist. Author of The Big Rewind and many short stories.

Robert Benson – Award winning poet & Hartwick College professor. Author of five volumes of poetry.

April L. Ford – Award winning author of literary fiction. Author of The Poor Children.

Jennifer R. Donohue – Sci fi and fantasy author. Runs a writers’ critique group at Huntington Library in Oneonta NY.

*There will be no open-mic at this month’s Writers Salon*

Are you a writer who dreams of being published, but you’re not quite sure where to start? Our Break into Publishing Panel will feature four authors who will share their publishing journeys and answer your questions. Free & Open to the public. Refreshments Served.

The program will begin at 7:30 and we will not have an open mic reading due to time constraints. The program will open by asking each author to tell the short version of their journey to publication. There will be a series of prepared questions, and then we will open it up to audience Q & A.

A handout will be available that gives tips and lists of publishing opportunities that the authors are familiar with. One of the issues for new writers is that the lists of where to publish are so overwhelming that they don’t know where to begin. The goal of this event is to give some guidance and narrow those lists so that new writers can get started with their submissions.

Thanks for your support!
