Publishing workshop for writers coming up

On Oct. 5, writers and poets will get a chance to have lunch with representatives from three Vancouver Island publishing companies

On Oct. 5, writers and poets with manuscripts nearing completion will get a chance to have lunch with representatives from three Vancouver Island publishing companies.

In a workshop sponsored by the Comox Valley Writers’ Society, the owner/editors of Promontory Press and Printorium Bookworks (both of Victoria), and Leaf Press (based in Lantzville), will make presentations on behalf of their companies. They will describe in specific terms the services their companies provide and the manuscripts they are looking for.

This will be followed by opportunities for registrants at the workshop to gather in small groups with each representative to discuss their personal publishing needs or aspirations. Writers taking part are advised to prepare a brief resumé of their writing experience and an outline of the book they are planning to publish.

The workshop will take place at the Little Red Church Community Arts Centre at 2182 Comox Ave. in Comox from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a 45-minute lunch break at noon. The cost to attend is $25 and includes a catered lunch. Proceeds of the workshop will go to support the Little Red Church Community Arts Centre.

Writers wishing to attend must pre-register and submit their registration fee no later than Sept. 28.

For further information or to register, contact Des Lindo, treasurer of the Comox Valley Writers’ Society by telephone at 250-338-0965 or by e-mail at deslind@shaw.ca.

In order that each writer can have his or her individual needs addressed, the number of registrants will be limited.
