Following the 10:00AM General Meeting of the Rose City Romance Writers
One might ask why it would benefit you to shift your focus away from novel writing to short story writing. The number one reason is marketing. This is one more way to promote your novels and brand, while honing your craft and learning to write succinctly. Sure, you can continue to write blog posts and articles in magazines and sources read by other writers, but stories are another way to reach your fans. Not only that, but you can make money and win contests doing so. Come to this workshop to find out what markets are out there, what magazines and anthologies are looking for, and how to find them.
