Entertain and Enlighten your Readers with your Life Stories.

How do we begin to write about our lives? Can we use dialogue, stories passed down from parents, and do we have to prove they are true? In today’s world where family members often live long distances from each other, it is difficult to share the interesting lives we have lived. There seems to be no time to sit on the porch and talk about the past. But we can still share our life experiences with our children, grandchildren and future generations by writing them now. In this class we will write entertaining as well as enlightening short pieces and receive feedback from our classmates.

Publish Your Writing 
Tri-County Community College
Instructor: Glenda C. Beall 

You have learned the writing craft and you are ready to submit your work for publication. 


This class is for anyone who needs advice and tips on finding the  best place to send poetry or short pieces of prose. We hope to help new writers  become knowledgeable about the frauds and scams in the publishing world so they don't fall victim to unscrupulous people and companies who take advantage of novice writers.

We will discuss what small presses look for and how to find one for your book. Why pay to publish your book when so many small presses are doing the same thing the big boys have always done, and no matter who with or how you publish, you still have to market your book. 

Questions you should ask before you publish your book - If you don't know what to ask, you might not get what you need.

Attend this workshop to get some of your questions answered from an experienced published writer. There will be an additional $5 fee for handouts. 3 hrs.

Saturday, July 23,   10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Fee: $25
