Do you have a story in you that wants to get told? Is it a novel, a short story, a memoir? So many of us have an inspiration or a life experience that we want to tell, a tale of human interest, whether it is a mystery, love story, tragedy or comedy. Is there a way to get your story told? How about a way to get it published? While it’s true that there are few fiction writers making a living from writing alone, there are many ways open to the rest of us to have a satisfying creative life–to write and publish distinctive pieces of fiction and memoir. In fact, there are probably more ways than ever before. In this webinar, Ginger Moran will describe the five ways to write fiction and memoir and the pros and cons of the three paths open to publishing. She will talk about writing, publishing, and why and how fiction and memoir writers should consider building a social media platform.
Ginger Moran is the author of The Algebra of Snow, a novel to be published in the spring of 2012.
