Emerging Writer's Workshop: What To Talk About When You Talk About Your Book

Thursday October 2, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm -- Traverwood Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for Teens in Grades 6-12 and Adults

How do you tell others about your book? Is there a way to sum up an entire book without getting bogged down in detail or leaving out the main point? In “What To Talk About When You Talk About Your Book,” authors Margaret Yang and Lara Zielin will cover the essential documents every writer needs: query letters, synopses, log lines and blurbs. Join us for this Emerging Writers Workshop, featuring perspectives from indie and traditional publishing.
