NaNoWhatNow? @ Queen Anne Baptist Church
Feb 3 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

NaNoWhatNow? A one-day workshop for novelists seeking to step up, on Queen Anne!

Have you made it through NaNoWriMo with a completed novel, a pretty good draft, or maybe just something that you hope for? This workshop will show you the next step for a completed novel, and give you some tips on how to complete one. Come listen to agent Dongwon Song and SFWA president and novelist Cat Rambo as they discuss the ins and outs of revising a long work, submitting to agents and editors, or self-publishing a novel in the increasingly varied markets of 2017/2018. Come ready to pitch, edit, or just learn how to get a rough draft to a finished product.

 

**This event is being held at a church, which means that there is street parking only. The church is ADA compliant, so there will be disabled parking for those that need it. We are also able to bring food in as long as we clean up afterward. There are several restaurants close by and a Trader Joes and Safeway.**
