South Bay Local Writers Group: Guest Speaker Nutschell Anne Windsor, "The Different Paths to Publishing (Yes, There’s More Than One!)"
Our main group meeting for May features guest speaker Nutschell Anne Windsor, discussing The Different Paths to Publishing (Yes, There’s More Than One!).
Writers may think that there is only one road to publication, but the truth is there are many paths to becoming an author. Traditional-publishing with the Big 5 in New York is no longer the only option. Advances in technology, and the expansion of the web and internet, have brought about many changes in the publishing industry. Now more than ever, getting published is a matter of choice, and not of time.
CBW-LA Founder and President Nutschell Windsor discusses the many different paths to publishing besides Traditional Publishing and Self-Publishing; their pros and cons; and how writers can decide which route to take.
About the Speaker: Nutschell Anne Windsor is a middle grade/young adult fantasy writer, the Founder/President of CBW-LA (Children’s Book Writers of Los Angeles), and the LA Region's Assistant Regional Adviser of the SCBWI (Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). She is also the Creative Writing (Online) and Events Rep for the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program.
After earning a BA in Psychology from the University of the Philippines (Diliman), Nutschell became an English teacher at Miriam College High School. Nutschell’s experiences have turned her into a detail-oriented, organized planner, and she uses these skills to teach and facilitate workshops and critique sessions for CBW-LA. She is also an active member of the blogging community, sharing writing tips, techniques, and reports on various writing events at www.thewritingnut.com and on Twitter @nutschell.
Nutschell co-organizes and facilitates the annual CBW-LA Writing Day Marathon (coming up on May 14), as well as edits and publishes the resulting Story Sprouts anthologies and novels, available on Amazon and at our May 7 meeting.
Our monthly large-group meeting typically convenes on the 1st Saturday morning of each month at the Redondo Beach Main Library. It is free and open to the public, constrained only by room size.
