Want to get the word out about your book? Of course you do!!! Getting yourself invited to discussion or review groups is likely to pay big dividends and hone your skills as a presenter so you’ll be ready when the BIG opportunity comes your way.
There is a senior learning organization called, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, (OLLI for short) that is affiliated with UNLV. It has 1500 members that attend lectures on the UNLV Paradise Campus. An HWG member, Ray Katz has gotten OLLI to include a course for their Spring Semester (Jan. 30 – May 1) titled “The Writer’s Experience”. The lectures are structured to have one or two LOCAL authors read from their work and then participate in a Q&A session about their book(s) and the subject of writing. Questions can range from; How many hours a day do you work, to How did you get it published, to How did you create your characters? Anything related to writing is okay.
What is better than being able to talk about your work in front of an interested audience?
Want to sign up for a speaking slot? Contact Ray Katz, 520-404-1705, firstname.lastname@example.org with the following: Contact info, Title of work(s), Genre, When you are available.
