October 11th and 12th: Extraordinary Editor Events, plus the K.I.S.S. Art Show

SCBWI Western Washington presents our Extraordinary Editor Event with Liz Kossnar from Simon & Schuster, and our K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simple, Silly) Art Show, on Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 in Demaray Hall at Seattle Pacific University.

Please join us for the K.I.S.S. Art Show with our talented local illustrators (6:15-7pm) before our evening with Liz Kossnar (7-9pm) where she will present: 
The Publishing Odyssey: Avoid the Sirens and Other Useful Tips
This presentation will liken not only the writer’s journey but also an editor’s journey to the publishing industry – and how they’re related to each other, giving a glimpse inside the publishing house but also an editor journey into a publishing career. And how these two journeys intersect and build on each other, giving a glimpse into the “other side” of publishing.

Parking is free in many of the Seattle Pacific University lots after 6 p.m. Please check signage in the lot for exceptions to this.

$10 for SCBWI International members
$15 for non-members

Free for Passport Holders (Still haven’t bought your Passport? Purchase it here.)

AND don’t miss Liz Kossnar’s Master Class on October 12, 3-5pm, SPU, Otto Miller 127, where she will present:
Building a Platform: Online and in Person
No matter which stage of the publishing process you are at, it’s important to get your name (or #brand) out “there.” This may seem daunting, especially for authors who’d rather write than self-promote, especially when it comes to navigating the many types of social media and being social in the real world. This workshop will take you through the basics of establishing a platform, and networking online and in person to help you throughout your writing career.
You must register in advance. Sign up for Liz's Master Class here.
