Do you know how to do something that you think others would be interested in doing? Would you like to write something that is more marketable than fiction? Join us for a writer’s workshop on how to write a how-to book, presented by lawyer/author Stephen Woodfin.
“How-to books are steady sellers over a long period of time as opposed to fiction which tends to be a flash in the pan,” said Woodfin. “How-tos can help an author with brand building and also allow him or her to experiment with voice and ways to tell a story about a non-fiction topic.”
In this workshop, Woodfin will cover each step of the process of writing a how-to book – from creating the manuscript to publication.
This valuable workshop will be held on Saturday, August 26 at 2:00 PM at the Paris Public Library. Workshop fees are incredibly affordable at $12 for Red River Valley Writers Guild members and $15 for non-members.

Do you have an idea for the next great American novel but you’re not sure how to get started? Or perhaps you have a desk drawer full of short stories that you would like to publish, but you are not sure of the steps to publication. Maybe you are a published author that would like to network with other writers and learn new marketing techniques. If any of these apply to you then the Red River Valley Writers Guild may be able to help you with your writing interests.
The Red River Valley Writers Group meets on the second Tuesday of each month. Writers of any genre and any experience level, from beginners to seasoned professionals, are welcome to join. Members will benefit from networking with other writers, peer support, round table sharing/critique of their work, and formal and informal educational opportunities in a friendly, supportive setting.
