How to get Published 101!
If you’re visiting Portland and you’re a writer who wants to get published, then our How to get Published 101 half-day workshop is for you. We gather with other travelers and writers (and those just thinking about writing) for an intimate, “how to get published” workshop. We’ll write, share, research and learn and by the time we’re finished, you’re all ready to start your article, blog, memoir or book. Then, we’ll ship you out the door for lunch at the famous Portland food-carts, research at Powell’s City of Books and a browse through the magazine racks at Rich’s Cigar Shop where you’ll find inspiration and information to get your name in print. You’ll receive plenty of practical advice, tips and guidance plus time for writing, brainstorming and hanging out with other writers in a gorgeous, historic, Portland home. Learn more here
