HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT WRITING? WE HAVE ANSWERS.
July 24th 6:00PM-7:30 PM at Prescott Public Library/Founders Suite
On Tuesday evening July 24th at 6:00 PM, the Professional Writers of Prescott (PWP) will host their annual networking meeting. This session has become one of the most helpful events PWP provides for its members and those in the community with questions about the writing process. Once a year we get together to share our experiences in an informal give-and-take get-together. PWP’s monthly meetings are open to the public and are held at the Prescott Public Library, 215 E. Goodwin Street in the Founders Suite (1st floor.)
If you have any questions about writing, e.g., character development, finding an editor, self-publishing, CreateSpace vs. Lulu, etc., ask, and one of our members will have an answer. To make this a meaningful occasion, we urge you to bring at least one question with you to the meeting. You can also email a question to [email protected], and we will discuss it at the meeting.
Professional Writers of Prescott, a 30-year-old organization, also known as Prescott Writers, is a network of published and non-published writers and editors who live in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Dewey/Humboldt, and surroundings of Yavapai County. We aim for the highest expression of our craft and are dedicated to sharing our knowledge.
