GLVWG Events

Upcoming Events

    • 21 Jan 2018
    • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
    • Wanamakers General Store, 8888 Kings Hwy, Kempton, PA
    Go West, Writers! Again
    Open to the public and free.

    Any person under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend this or any other GLVWG event.

    The event is free, but it may be canceled if the weather turns icy. It mirrors the format of the monthly Writers Café already in place. Interested participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring a summary and single page of their current work for gentle critique and guidance. 

    The readings will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is open to all, but especially those GLVWG members who are unable to make it to the regular Thursday Writers Cafe at the Palmer Township Library due to distance.

    Café West is more than just a critique meeting. It’s an opportunity to meet with other writers, share and compare notes about the writing process. It can give you the boost you need to get going and finish your work as well as provide a circle of like-minded enthusiasts who share your passion for the written word.

    Coffee, beverages and sandwiches will be available for purchase.

    Questions: Bernadette Sukley – bsukley@ptd.net.

      Donna Galanti: 5 Things to Start Doing Right Now Before You Get a Book Deal!

      Even if you don’t have a literary agent, a book deal, or a polished draft, Donna will show you what you can do right now to successfully pave the way to an author career before your book is published. Learn how to build a strong author foundation that includes; creating a peer support network, forming relationships with authors in your genre, sharing the wisdom you already have (and may not know it), volunteering for industry organizations, and connecting with readers via social media (yes, before that book is out!). Creating an author platform takes time and building it slowly can make this overwhelming process not only easy and manageable, but fun! Attendees will come away with the steps to launch their author platform over time as they continue to seek publication.

      GLVWG

      Afternoon Workshop

      Any person under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to attend this or any other GLVWG event.

      Donna Galanti: 

      Foundations of World-Building 

      All stories happen somewhere. Whether you write fantasy, dystopian, science fiction, or even about the “real world,” world-building is key to creating a meaningful story. With two science fiction and two fantasy books under her belt, Donna shares methods of world-building that writers can apply to any genre. From the smallest details to the rules of its universe, discover the way a considered approach to world-building can govern the hearts of your characters and help drive your story. Topics include: elements of world-building, using world-building to support conflict and tension, world-building questions and resources, and what to avoid in building your world. Workshop attendees will craft several short pieces exploring character and setting, world rules, as well as telescoping in on one of the 7 areas that can serve as the foundation for your world.
