If you’re in the Memphis area, I host a Memphis Writers’ Group for authors. Navigating the publishing world is hard, whether you're going the traditional or self-publishing route.
This group gives newbie storytellers the chance to edit, write, and publish their work several times a year.
We have three short-story writing challenges a year, each with a different theme. We meet twice a month to discuss and edit. Every four months, we publish the stories in an anthology on popular platforms—Amazon, iTunes, etc.
Come out and meet me. I hope to see you there!
*If you’re not in the Memphis area, but still want to join in the fun, contact me using this form.
