Sunday, March 23, at 2 p.m. will be another of our great Writing Workshop Workshops. As usual, we’ll be gathering downstairs at Olive’s in Cincinnati’s Clifton Gaslight District.
Bring seven minutes’ worth of your writing to read, $5 for the kitty, your books to sell, any publishing or writing questions you’d like to ask, and a friend or two. I hope I will have a big announcement for you!
Head’s up for April: on Sunday, April 27 (same time, same place), at our Writing Workshop Workshop, we’ll be joined by Carol Topp, CPA, author of Business Tips and Taxes for Writers. It’s too late for your 2013 filing, but Carol will have lots of great advice for your 2014 return on how to be a professional writer, in terms of what’s deductible and what’s not.
So put April 27 on your calendar, and in the meantime I hope to see you Sunday, March 23, at 2!
Hey everybody! If you’re looking for a warm place to gather and share your writing with a great group of people, join us Sunday for this month’s Writing Workshop Workshop. We’ll be meeting at Olive’s on Ludlow Ave. in the Clifton Gaslight District.
We officially start at 2 p.m., but if you’d like to order from the breakfast buffet, you might want to get there at 1:30. Just tell them you’re with the writing group.
Bring seven minutes’ worth of writing, $5 for the kitty, money for munchies, and a friend or two who might be interested in writing.Those of you who have recently published books might want to bring them, too. ;-)
Hey writers! If you’re a beginner looking for a nurturing environment in which to share your writing, or you’re a seasoned professional looking for a new source of feedback, please consider joining us. We’ll be at Olive’s on Ludlow at 2:00. Bring about seven minutes’ worth of material to read, $5 for the kitty, and more money if you plan to eat.
Today I’ll be talking with the Sisters in Crime of Columbus, Ohio (SiCCO). Don’t you just love that acronym?
We’re going to talk about how to get your writing in the best shape for submitting it to editors and agents (and contests, too!). I read some great stories and can’t wait to meet the authors. Some of the things we’ll be discussing are manuscript format, action verbs, punctuation and style guides.
For example, did you know that you’re supposed to put only one space at the end of a sentence and after a colon? Do you know when that standard changed? In the mid-1980s. Want to know why? Well, you’ll have to invite me to talk to your group to find out!
Hi folks! It’s that time again. We’re meeting this-coming Sunday at 2 p.m. at Olives at the Ludlow Garage in the Clifton gaslight area for our monthly “Writing Workshop Workshop.” For the uninitiated, our gathering is where you can learn the gentle art of critiquing other people’s work and having your own work critiqued in return. Bring about seven minutes’ worth of material to read or just come to listen to everyone else, and bring $5 for the kitty. We usually end by 4:30 or 5 p.m. All genres welcome; just remember that you’re going to be reading it out loud in a public place. (more…)
Last-minute notice! Operators are standing by! OK, no they’re not.
Today, August 5, at 2 p.m., we are holding our monthly Writing Workshop Workshop at Olive’s at the Ludlow Garage. If you’re interested in workshopping a sample of your writing, please come. If you’d like to hear some great writing, please come. If you’re thinking about writing, please come.
Bring seven minutes’ worth of material to read, $5 for the kitty and (most important) you.
Hey folks! This summer I’m going to be giving some talks and conducting workshops around the Tristate, if you’d like to catch me without signing up for a multi-week class. Check out these great opportunities to hear me!
Editing a document for someone is a lot like dating: there is a relationship between the two of you. However, it is unlike dating in that no matter how much a friendship might develop, the relationship is still based on professionalism and one of you is still going to be paid. (more…)
Thanks to everyone who came to the Write On! Workshop Cincy Styleyesterday. Judging from the evaluations, and speaking for Val and me, a great time was had by all! And didn’t Colleen Zuber at the Refuge Coffee Bar serve us a great lunch? Steve Gillen’s presentation on Copyrights and Contracts (and all the extra tips he gave us!) is surely going to save many of us a lot of headaches.
For yesterday’s participants: did you feel as if your head was spinning and you couldn’t write fast enough? For those who couldn’t make it: are you kicking yourself now? Never fear! Sign up now for the Write On! Workshop that we’re holding in Dayton on March 31, 2012. See you there!
