February 25th – How to Submit Your Hit and Stay Out of the Slush Pile

March 24th – Meet Sci-Fi Author Mike Smith!
– Mike Smith is the author of The Martian Marauders, a new ebook now available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Involves a talk on ebook publishing and a Q and A with the author.
April 28th – Meet Short Story Author Glen Pourciau!
– Glen’s book Invite, a collection of ten stories, won the Iowa Short Fiction Award and was published by the University of Iowa Press. Involves a talk on short story writing and a Q and A with the author.
This is a wonderful opportunity for young writers to learn essential lessons about the craft and its possible career paths, as well as meet others their age with their same interests. Please pass this along to anyone interested. Thank you!”
