Curious about writing or self-publishing?

July 28, 2014

Do you have a few chapters of your first attempt at a novel on your flashdrive or buried in a shoebox in your closet? With the demands of work, family, or school, it might seem impossible to start writing, not to mention finish writing a novel. However, authors Kourtney Heintz and B.C. Kowalski proved that it can be done, and they will share their experiences with you during these special events at the Marathon County Public Library.

This Thursday, Kourtney Heintz will host a productive part-time writer workshop at MCPL Wausau at 6:30 p.m. Heintz wrote two novels while working full-time, and she will share her tips for setting deadlines and managing the distractions of real life.

You may have heard of authors self-publishing their work, but might wonder exactly what that process entails and if it is right for you. Stevens Point-based author B.C. Kowalski will share his self-publishing experiences and read excerpts from his first science fiction novel,“Robot Awareness," at MCPL Wausau on August 9th at 2:00 p.m. 

Both events do not require advance registration, and are free and open to the public.
