Tri-Valley (Zoom): Workshop A La Carte

January 15, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Workshop A La Carte, January 15, 2022

MAJOR CHANGE: Due to an increase in the transmission rate of Covid-19 (omicron), TVW believes our safest option for Saturday’s meeting is to do it remotely on Zoom.

Please note: there will not be an in-person meeting at the Four Points by Sheraton in Pleasanton.

Have you poured your heart and soul into a draft of your novel or spent the month of November writing 50,000 + words for NaNoWriMo, and now don’t know what to do with all your effort? Or you want to write a short story for the anthology but aren’t sure you have a complete story arc? Are you stuck with your research? Or not sure if you’ve done enough to properly world build? Perhaps you have questions about self-publishing. Then join us on January 15, 2022  at 2:00 p.m. on ZOOM as we hold a “Workshop A La Carte.”

All RSVPd & paid attendees as of Friday at noon on January 14th will receive a .pdf packet of handouts from all five presenters attached to an email that contains the Zoom link by Friday afternoon (around 4:00 p.m.). If you have RSVP’d and paid but do not see the Zoom link email, please check your spam/promotions/trash folder before getting in contact with TVW. TVW can’t guarantee a response for any communication received after Friday evening.
The Zoom meeting will begin with a brief introduction and then each of the presenters will present on their topic. Q&A will be at the end.

  • What to Ask When Hiring an Editor—Linda Todd
  • Research Resources and When Enough is Enough—Ann Parker
