FOR AN ALL NEW SERIES:
SHE WRITES LIVE!
@ Girls Write Now
247 West 37th Street, Suite 1800
Featuring BETSY LERNER, author of "The Forest For The Trees: An Editor's Advice to Writers" (recently revised and edited), and partner and literary agent with Dunow, Carlson and Lerner.
In conversation with She Writes Live! host Alissa Quart
She Writes Live! is a new interactive reading and writing series, hosted by She Writes.com, in partnership with Girls Write Now.
Part editorial exchange and part master class, each participant at She Writes Live! will leave the event with a revised seed of an idea for something to write. Many attendees will also leave with what may be a new experience: first-hand editorial responses to their own work at events, from some of the most accomplished writers, editors and agents in publishing.
One glass of wine is included in the ticket price, and $5 from every ticket will be donated to our hosts and collaborators, Girls Write Now.

A unique community where women writers can create networks and get the services and support they need to make every stage of their writing lives easier, She Writes is a business on a mission: to forever transform the landscape in which women write, publish, and read. She Writes is the brainchild of founder Kamy Wicoff, an author and salonniere based in New York City and Deborah Siegel, an author and blogger.
