What will Book Country be doing at the SFWC?
In addition to speaking on panels and taking part in the Ask-a-Pro and Writing Community roundtable events, I will also be exhibiting in the main lobby. At the Book Country table, you’ll be able to sign up to have a one-on-one writing and publishing goal-setting session and Book Country walkthrough.
Our friends at Girl Friday Productions will also be at the San Francisco Writers Conference this year. You’ll be able to visit their table to learn more about their editorial and other publishing services. You’ll also want to stop by the bookstore at the conference to pick up a copy of Book Country member Andrea Dunlop‘s novel LOSING THE LIGHT, workshopped on Book Country and to be published by Atria Books in February 2016!
As we get closer to February, watch this space for updates about SFWC panels and events!
