Writers’ Workshops Focus on Craft, Carlsbad, CA
L.C. Scott is the founder of eFrog Press and an author. Her many years of teaching at the high school and university level and her freelance writing career have prepared her to lead a team of experts to guide both fledgling and experienced authors through the maze of indie publishing. Today on Take the Leap she shares about two upcoming writers’ workshops in Carlsbad, California.
We are excited to announce that eFrog Press is launching a series of workshops for writers in the San Diego area. We have plans to develop webinars so that authors—and aspiring authors—can participate from anywhere. But for now, if you live within driving distance of Carlsbad, CA, we’ve got a deal for you!
Here at eFrog Press, we see many of the same issues when we work with writers on developmental editing. With a little information, some coaching, and a bit of revision, authors are able to transform their books into well-written titles ready for the next phase of publication—copyediting.
At our workshops, participants are encouraged to bring the first chapter of their book (fiction or nonfiction) so they can immediately apply what they learn. If your book is still in the conceptual stage, come with ideas for possibilities and we will help you take the next step.
On August 16, our morning session will focus on the craft of writing. Practical techniques for prewriting and revision will be introduced and put into practice. The presenters (all published authors) will illustrate each point with samples from their writing.
Good food supports good thinking so lunch will be catered by an experienced chef who specializes in healthy, delicious food. Lunch will also be a time to network with other writers. Afternoon sessions will focus on fiction or nonfiction—you choose! But more about that in next week’s post, or take a peek at our offerings at http://www.efrogpress.com/writersworkshops/. Better yet, register now while there is still space. Enrollment will be limited.
The September workshop will cover DIY indie publishing and teach you how to get big sales of your book on Amazon. Early bird discount for August 16 workshop expires August 5. Early bird discount for September 13 workshop expires September 1.
