Calling all writers, learn how to get your manuscript published, including tips for finding a literary agent. On Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. the Palm Springs Public Library will welcome editor, Laurie Gibson. She will present Book Publishing 1-2-3: From the Writers Fingers to the Readers Hands.
Join us for a “behind the scenes” glimpse at how a manuscript actually becomes a printed book. Ms. Gibson will describe the step-by-step journey, and share some practical tips to help writers improve their chances of getting published (including ideas for finding and successfully connecting with literary agents).
Readers and writers alike will enjoy this lively, interactive presentation, which is designed to help people better understand the world (and process) of publishing. Bring a pen, paper, and your questions — and come prepared to participate in a lively “Word Association” brainstorming exercise and a Q&A session.
Laurie Gibson has edited more than 175 books and proofread novels such as “The Color Purple” (Alice Walker) and “Mrs. Dalloway” (Virginia Woolf), as well as several titles by bestselling business author Brian Tracy. She has served as an instructor for the U.C. Extension program since 1999, and also works with first-time authors to help them improve their writing.
The lecture is FREE and open to the public, but seating is limited. The lecture will be presented in The Learning Center at the Library.
