Book Publishing 1-2-3 with Laurie Gibson, a Benefit for the Monterey Public Library Endowment Fund
Laurie Gibson will lead a writing workshop she's presented throughout California for 10 years. Packed with stories and tips, this fast-paced program is designed to empower and inspire writers of fiction and nonfiction alike. She will start with a brief glance at the book business: self-publishing, e-books, and traditional publishing. Then Gibson will share ideas to help writers improve their craft, tips for connecting with literary agents and editors, and some thoughts on book promotion. Other highlights: writing prompts and self-assessments, four-page handout, Q&A, sample edit or review of five pages.
Laurie Gibson has presented "Book Publishing 1-2-3" throughout the state (from the northern tip of San Francisco Bay to the Mexican border) for nearly a decade. She is a full-time editor whose clients include nearly 200 individual authors in addition to Stanford University, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Patagonia, Inc. For several years, Laurie also taught editing for the Extension programs at UCSD and UCLA. Laurie Gibson's LinkedIn Profile
