Binge-Write Your Novel in 5 Steps
Date: April 16, 2022
Short on writing time but long on ideas? If you’re nodding your head, this is the workshop for you! Kerry Evelyn will share her strategies for plotters, pantsers, and plansters alike, as well as helpful “binge” tips and a library of resources to get your book done. Learn how to get the most out of sporadic writing sessions to take your story from concept to completion. Printables included.
Call for Short Story Submissions
Scott Tilley, SCWG Fellow, has issued a call for submissions for his latest anthology, Daughters. Submission due date is May 1, 2022, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare your short story. NOTE: this anthology is Scott’s, and is not affiliated with the Space Coast Writers’ Guild. For more information, please contact Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
A new SCWG member, Gordon England, reports that he has been invited to be on the Advisory Board for Stormwater Magazine. Also, he will be giving a webinar on Testing Stormwater Pollutants for their Stormwater University. He also is set to publish another memoir of short stories about living in Texas years ago. You can look at the short stories he’s published on storystar.com and poems on allpoetry.com. Visit Gordon’s AMAZON page.
