Kyros and I belong to the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest here in Everett, WA. This group isn’t focused on helping you write better (that’s our Kickstart Writers Group) but, rather, they help you with the ins and outs of publishing your writing and marketing your products.
Recently, the Cooperative held a book launch party at the University Book Store in Mill Creek. While it wasn’t as well attended as last year’s event, it did provide a chance for the authors to meet the public. Another event is planned for Saturday, May 13, in downtown Olympia.
Past meetings have covered such diverse topics as: how to build your website, how to conduct yourself at an interview (Orion was the guinea pig for this demo and thoroughly enjoyed it!), and how to present yourself to the public.
Matthew Buza is their technical guru and a writer of YA fantasy. He is also responsible for their website. You don’t have to be a member to read the daily offerings of stories, blog posts, poetry, and other works by the group.
If you’re a writer or an aspiring writer, this group is worth checking out. If not, you can just drop by and read content from some of the best writers the Pacific Northwest.
