Upcoming Classes & Workshops

Rachel Weaver 74KBGet Your Opening Chapters Submission Ready You’ve written your book, now it’s time to approach agents. Let’s say you pitch an agent at the NCW Conference or you email a bunch of queries and you get the world’s most awesome response, “That sounds fascinating, send me the first few chapters.” In this three-hour class on February 26, with author Rachel Weaver, we will discuss specific crafting techniques you can employ to ensure that your first few chapters hook a reader such that he or she will have no choice but to request the rest of your manuscript. Sign up today! See our other upcoming classes designed to help you further your writing and become a published author.

Hot off the Press

The Feed Me MonsterFrom Katie's website: The Feed Me Monsteris a fun and light-hearted children’s book full of rhyme, color and charm! Tried and tested on many little ones, it will be requested at bedtime! I wrote The Feed Me Monster because I used to overeat and always felt uncomfortable and disappointed afterwards—the type of feeling that occurs after a Thanksgiving splurge!! Overeating and emotional eating do not serve us well—I believe we all deserve more balance. The key is to become aware of the behavior, interrupt it and replace it with a new one! The Feed Me Monster lets us look at how we think and behave around food—it’s a great way to start a conversation with your kiddies about healthy eating habits! Help your children to listen to their bodies, to recognize hunger and to stop when they are full. See more member books in our library
