A Non-Profit Group of Writers Helping Writers
At our March 1st meeting new Presidents Scott and Gail Moss and new Exec VP Rebecca Varga got things rolling with members sharing success stories, that included Serita Stevens’ book.
Announcements included reminders about the BFF contest, the Motto contest, a new Helpful Links page that will be part of the remodeled website when it premiers later this month, and reminders to follow us on Facebook and at our official Twitter page.
There is new contact info for the AWG Board on the "contact us" page, and the July meeting will be held on the 12th due to the holiday.
Our guest speaker was Franklin Leonard, founder of The Black List, a website that evolved into a place where filmmakers find great material to make films and great material finds filmmakers to make them.
Can’t wait to see you next month,
Your AWG News Team
Publisher Robert Jacobs of Jacobs/Brown Press (an imprint of Jacobs/Brown Media Group) is a true friend of the Alameda Writers Group. Through special arrangement with the AWG, group members are invited to contact publisher directly without the need of an agent.
Jacobs/Brown is a boutique publisher located in San Diego and, contrary to the policies of bigger houses, is dedicated to being a writer-‐friendly house, with better profit participation for authors, creative involvement, and less contractual restrictions.
AWG former president Marc Cushman has experienced the business practices of major publishing house first hand, endorses Jacobs/Brown, and has put his pen where his mouth is … by recently signing with the publisher for a three-‐book deal, one of which has been published. You can contact Robert at:
