You are invited to a kick-off event celebrating the new Seattle Chapter of the Authors Guild!
Sunday, July 29
Seattle Public Library
5009 Roosevelt Way NE
Please RSVP here by Friday, July 27.
Hello, fellow authors.
Following up the results of our recent survey—my thanks to the many who responded—I’m delighted to announce the first meeting of the Seattle chapter of the Authors Guild. We’ll be gathering Sunday, July 29, from 2–4 p.m. at the University branch of the Seattle Public Library, 5009 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, convenient to I-5. Our featured speaker will be William Kenower, memoirist, writing coach, and a gifted, impassioned teacher.
If you’ve ever seen Bill at work, you’ll know what I mean; if you haven’t, you have a treat in store. His theme will be “Marketing for Authors Who Hate to Market,” and his presentation will take about an hour, leaving time to socialize and enjoy refreshments.
More than a few of you commented that you’ve been waiting for a group like ours to take shape. So have I, and I’m excited to be a part of it.
If you think you’ll come July 29, I’d love an RSVP, so we know about how many people to expect. Hope to see you there.
Chair, Seattle Chapter, Authors Guild
