Joan Leggitt, Editor and Publisher at Twisted Road Publications, will speak and take questions from 10 a.m. – noon on Saturday, July 26th at the Winter Park Public Library, 460 E. New England Avenue, Winter Park, FL 32789. Leggitt will provide tips from an editor/publisher’s perspective for writers to polish their manuscripts into publication-ready submissions. The event is free and open to the public as part of the library’s New Work (How-To) series.
Brad and I hope we see you at the Winter Park Library tomorrow, Sunday, July 6th from 2-4 p.m. for a conversation with Sandi Hutcheson, author of the novel Looks Great Naked.
A specialist in turning hurtful realities into selling, compelling fiction, Sandi will discuss how to use humor to approach difficult material.
Sandi has an MFA from Spalding University, a PhD from Warnborough College in Dublin, is currently working on a history of her father’s Atlanta mega-church, and will lead a group of writers to the places that inspired Grimm’s Fairy Tales this fall. In her spare time, she speaks at venues like last weekend’s Florida Writers Mini-conference in Altamonte Springs. I plan to ask her if she ever sleeps!
