SCWG Meetings

February 15, 2020

We had 41 attendees at this meeting! What a great turnout! Our presenter was our good friend Jaimie Engle. Jaimie's presentation was Planning, Writing & Editing a Book that Doesn't Suck, and it was as engaging as it had promised to be! The audience paid rapt attention and asked engaging questions. Jaimie was gracious enough to provide a copy of her presentation, and you can download a PDF copy on the Files page. You can get the entire presentation in one chunk, or broken up into Part 1, Part 2, or Part 3.
