For already established or not-yet-published writers, creating a short audio for the web might be the single best way to find your audience and craft your own brand. It’s never too early to get yourself out to the mystery-loving public.
Our meetings feature guest speakers who provide information on interesting topics. On those evenings where there is not a guest speaker or where the speaker finishes early, we have open readings, discussions on writing issues, networking, or a book discussion. Past meetings have included presentations on marketing, how to conduct interviews, K-9 police, the world of indie publishing, and more.
We hope to see everyone at our Upcoming 2015 meetings. Unless otherwise noted on the website, our meetings are held
