Whether you’re trying to sell your first book or your fortieth, the road to publication is never an easy one to navigate. Let Liberty States Fiction Writers guide your way. A multi-genre organization, the Liberty States Fiction Writers is dedicated to the education and support of all fiction writers. We provide workshops, networking events and promotional opportunities to aid both published and yet-to-be published writers.
November 11th meeting
How can you get editors to consider or even buy your work? By providing your best manuscript with the fewest errors. Nothing hurts your chances of being published more than a manuscript with that looks unprofessional. It is also crucial if you want to self publish and want readers to return for your next story. Getting the details right is YOUR job and precision counts. Grammar Goddess Anne Walradt will discuss how you can do the final cleanup on your story so all the world can read it. Please bring a few samples of your work with you to the meeting. We will spend time on the tricky details of getting your manuscript as polished as it can be!
Anne Frazier Walradt is a freelance teacher, writer, and editor. Her articles and essays have appeared in such diverse publications as Maine in Print and Romance Forever. She taught literature and power writing at the secondary and college levels. Prospective authors take her nationally known “Show, Don’t Tell” course, which often leads to publication. She’s taught a humor workshop at the International Women’s Writing Guild conference held at Skidmore College for thirteen years. A past president of New Jersey Romance Writers, she is the editor of their monthly newsletter. In 1999, she edited Romance Recipes for the Soul (Doubleday), which includes one of her short stories. As a leader in her church and community, has actively supported families in grief and has created digital montage testimonials.
