Following our hugely successful November webinar with top New York decision-maker editor Riva Hocherman (Henry Holt / Metropolitan Books), we kick off our 2019 writer’s programs.

This month’s panel is designed specifically to help writers determine which path is the best (and the most profitable) for them in today’s world of traditional publishing, self-publishing, small presses, and online and E-books.

There will be plenty of lively discussion, questions taken from the audience, and a chance to network and connect after the program.

Join IWOSC as we kick off what we trust will be a happy, informative, and profitable New Year for the SoCal writing community!
