We are excited to kick off the new year with an old and dear friend of CWC—literary agent Michael Larsen! As directors of the San Francisco Writers Conference, Michael Larsen and Elizabeth Pomada know everything there is to know about dealing with publishers. Michael is as well-known for his comedic presentations almost as well as for his knowledge of the industry.
And we begin this year with great news: Larsen believes this is a “golden age” for writers!
Lots of “NEW” in 2016…
New HOURS: The author support group meets at noon. Our marketing group meets at 1pm. We start CWC Business at 2pm, and the speakers take the stage at 3.
New LOCATION: We are moving our meetings this year to ConneXionJLP near Jack London Square. It is a 13 minute walk from City Center BART, and there is parking on the street and in the garage by the movie theater. (The entrance on Fourth street is ADA accessible.) Check the map!
New FEES: To cover our costs for the new venue, which we believe will be a much more comfortable home-base for all the club’s needs, we will be asking members to pay $5 and non-members to pay $10.
Our featured CWC author this month is Kristen Caven, author of Perfectly Revolting and The Bullying Antidote. (Check out her end-of-year MUSEletter, recorded by Davie Simmons, at the CWC Holiday Social.)
