Twin Cities Picture Book Salon!

It’s a FREE community gathering of picture book writers of all levels who want to support one another’s new endeavors and generate energy around picture book writing in the Twin Cities.  Let’s gather to mix and mingle, keep each other up-to-date with news and announcements, share resources, discuss issues relevant to modern picture book writing.

Bring your self and your enthusiasm for picture book writing, and, if you want, your book, business cards, flyers, brochures, etc.  Please pass this invitation on to others who you think might be interested–my contact list is far from complete!  Find our facebook group here.

(Adults only, please. 16+)

WHERE:             Room 203, The Loft Literary Center @ Open Book

1011 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis MN

WHEN:              Monday, November 4th 2019, 7-8:30pm

Snacks and beverages provided.  Suggested donation $5.  Please RSVP: mollybethgriffin@gmail.com or on the Facebook event.

The Picture Book Salon meets on the first Monday of each month, in the large classroom on the –>second floor<– of Open Book (room 203), 7-8:30pm. Suggested donation $5 helps cover snacks, drinks, supplies, and promotion.

When it’s time to start sending your work out in the world, no one really tells you one of the most important things: how to even find a literary agent! At the November Salon, “Query Queen” Sarah Ahiers will walk you through query writing, submission tips, and the amazing and useful QueryTracker tool and how it can help you make querying a breeze. Bring your questions!

Please note: Our next Salon will be a casual Holiday Storytelling gathering on December 2.
