Always wanted to be a writer? Stop wasting time and start your writing life today!
Join us for a book talk and presentation by author Paulette Perhach on her newest book, Welcome to the Writer's Life on Thursday, August 30 at 7pm.
With warmth and humor, the author welcomes you into the writer's life as someone who has been there on the other side looking in. Like a freshman orientation for writers, this book includes an in-depth exploration of all the elements of a writer's life, from your writing practice to your reading practice, to your writing craft and the all-important and often-overlooked business of writing. Harness the powers of crowdsourcing and social media to grow your writing career, and use the most current research on success, gamification, and lifestyle design to take your writing life to the next level. Complete with writing exercises, tools, checklists, infographics, and behind-the-scenes tips from working writers of all types, this book offers everything you need to jump-start a successful writing life.
Paulette Perhach's writing has been published in the New York Times, Elle, Slate, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire. She's worked for Health and Coastal Living magazines, as well as various newspapers. Hugo House awarded her the Made at Hugo House fellowship in 2013. She was nominated for the 2016 BlogHer Voices of the Year award for her essay "A Story of a Fuck Off Fund," which was included in the anthology Freshman Year of Life from Flatiron Books.
