Hey! I'm currently doing two writing-related fundraisers for my beloved church, Park Slope United Methodist. Will you please check them out, sign up, and/or share?
1) On Thursday, November 30, at 8 p.m. EST I'm offering a webinar, "The Secrets of Selling Your Manuscript: From Submissions to Acquisition." From the description: "In this one-hour benefit webinar, I’ll walk you through the submissions and acquisitions process step by step, addressing the agent search, the elements of a successful query letter and submissions package, and what’s happening on the editorial side of the desk, all the way through to a final response. Wherever you are in the submissions process, this webinar will provide the information you need to give your manuscript its best shot." Cost: $40. You can ask questions beforehand that I'll try to answer either in the course of the session or over e-mail afterward, and if you can't attend the webinar live, you can still sign up and receive a link to watch it after it's aired. I've never given this talk before, and I'm looking forward to it, so I hope you'll join me.
2) Through a silent auction, I'm offering five of my standard one-hour sessions of editorial time, which you can use for a critique, hands-on editorial work (line-editing, copyediting, proofreading), a strategy or career discussion.... It's up to you! The auction will conclude on Saturday, November 18. Click here to bid.
Thank you for your interest in both of these opportunities!
