“Getting Your Foot in the Door” – A workshop for writers with editors Carin Siegfried and Betsy Thorpe

On Saturday, May 12, WNBA – Charlotte founding members Carin Siegfried and Betsy Thorpe are presenting a workshop for writers on crafting an elevator pitch, query letter, and author bio. They also are offering critiques of  participating writers’ first 500 words of their manuscripts.  We hope lots of local writers will attend this very informative workshop!

Since all of you WNBA members are not writers yourselves, please do forward this on to anyone you know who may be interested.  Thanks!

For more information please check out Carin’s and Betsy’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TwoEditorsAndAComma, or click here for a printable PDF.
