Hey Writers! You don't have to travel to Edmonds WA this year for the writers' conference--though we will miss you. This year the WOTS (Write on the Sound) conference is on-line. Our EPIC Board members, Laura Moe and Mindy Halleck are teaching workshops.
Laura is teaching, Make It to the Finish Line. Nearly 90% of people say they’d love to write a book, but only 5% actually finish. In this session she will address the numerous barriers that prevent many prospective novelists and memoirists from realizing their lifelong dreams of writing a book. She will also discuss long-term benefits of finishing a project, present strategies for participants to complete their manuscripts, and provide insights about publishing options. Laura spent most of her working life as a librarian and English teacher in Ohio, and moved to Seattle where she writes full-time and is an active member of SCBWI and EPIC Group Writers. Moe is the author of Breakfast with Neruda (Simon & Schuster/Merit Press, 2016), Blue Valentines (2019), and The Language of The Son (2019). www.lauramoebooks.com

MERMAIDS, MAIDENS or MYSTICS— 8 Female Archetypes Every Writer Should Know.
