You have questions? The Writing Show has answers!
Traditional Publishing vs. Self-Publishing
Getting the Book Contract
Writing for the Children's Market
The Hub City Writers Project and the Spartanburg County Public Libraries team up for a brand new series of programs in 2014 about the business and craft of writing. These panel discussions, in a casual, talk-show format, are held at the Library Headquarters, 151 S. Church Street, on third Thursdays at 7 pm, January through May. This new educational series is inspired by a long-running and popular program created by the James River Writers of Richmond, Va. Each panel will include three to four writing/publishing professionals and a moderator. These evenings are an opportunity to network, get your questions asked, and to go behind the scenes in the sometimes-complex world of publishing.
The events are free and open to the public.
