Write This Way

So you wanna be a writer, huh? But the New Times hasn’t responded to your 96th resumé submission, and the last publishing company you called told you to send your manuscript to 246 No Chance Lane. Don’t give up yet! Tonight from 7:00 to 9:00, the Miami chapter of the Society of Latino and Hispanic Writers (SLHW) is going to supply the tools to make this game work for you. At The First Three Steps to Becoming a Writer, there will be a panel discussion featuring authors Nick Garnett and Gaby Triana as well as journalist Carlos Harrison.

“The event is for unpublished writers who want to learn how to become professional writers. We’ll talk about the steps to getting your book published, the different types of writing, and how to get paid to become a writer,” says Claudia Forestieri, second VP of the society. “But this event is not just for Hispanic and Latino writers; we just happen to be organizing this event for all writers in South Florida.” The information is free, so get your learn on at the Tower Theater.
Wed., Oct. 17, 7-9 p.m., 2007
