Don’t Miss These Three Events – Free Educational Seminars in November

We have three seminars planned in November that you won’t want to miss.  These are great opportunities to expand your knowledge of the publishing industry and the writing process.

November 8 @ 2:00 p.m. – DIY Publishing with Columbus Idea Foundry

Columbus Idea Foundry (CIF) will be hosting this workshop on the steps that publishers use to produce great books at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 8.  Whether you’re considering self-publishing, or just want to know more about the process of publishing, this is a great opportunity to learn more about how exceptional books are produced.

Get the details for this seminar on Facebook here. This 90-minute seminar is free, but CIF appreciates RSVPs.

November 12 @ 7:00 p.m. – Navigating the Publishing Industry

Join us at CCC headquarters for some information on the publishing industry.  Once you have a finished manuscript, there are so many paths available to you!  Learn the advantages and disadvantages of the three types of publishers, and common warning signs that a publisher might not be what you expect.

Get the details for this event on Facebook here. This seminar is free, no registration required.  BYOB.

November 22 @ 1:00 p.m. – Revising and Editing a Novel Manuscript

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) or otherwise, you nearly have a finished manuscript.  Now what?  Learn some helpful steps for getting that manuscript revised and query ready.

This free event is hosted by the Bexley Library, and no registration is required.  Get the full details here.

I hope that we see you at some of these events this month!

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) Write-In at Via Vecchia Nov. 7

nanowrimoDid you know that November is National Novel Writing Month?  (NaNoWriMo for short).  The idea is to write a 50,000 word first draft of a novel in one month.

Thousands of people attempt it each year.  It’s a great opportunity to finally put that idea you’ve got into motion, and start getting some words onto paper.

Columbus Creative Cooperative will be holding a special write-in on November. 7 at Via Vecchia Winery, from 7pm to 9:30pm.  Find all of the details on Facebook.

What’s a write-in?  A write-in is when everyone brings their laptops, pens, pencils, paper, thesauri (?), etc. together and just writes.

At this particular write-in, we’ll have space for concentrated writing, as well as group discussion.  We’ll provide some snacks, prizes for people who make the word count goal for the evening, and you’ll also be able to purchase drinks (alcoholic and non) from Via Vecchia, including their amazing wine.

The event is free (other than drinks, and possibly parking, depending on your luck). All we ask is that if you come, come prepared to write (no spectators or lollygaggers please).

Come on out, meet some other writers, and let the community inspire your writing to greater word count.  If you made a resolution about that novel last New Year’s, November might be your last shot.  🙂
