FREE WRITING CLASS: PUBLISHING PITFALLS – What Are They & How Do You Avoid Them?
Monday, March 20, 2017
630pm
WHERE?
Changing Hands Bookstore
Phoenix, AZ

After almost a decade in the industry and nine novels with imprints at Random House and others, author Tom Leveen has a rap sheet of mighty highs and grievous lows. With just a little bit of warning, he could have avoided the worst parts…and so can you. In this class for writers of all genres and abilities, Tom will walk you through some of the many things that no one is telling you about the publishing world, traditional or indie. Part craft, part business, and all true, this free event is in support of Tom’s ninth novel. Bring a notepad or laptop for a whole lotta notes!

Join Poisoned Pen for its first ever LIT OUT LOUD event and publication party for Tom Leveen’s newest book!

Author Tom Leveen is also a 22-year veteran of local theatre, having been the artistic director of both Is What Is Theatre and Chyro Arts Venue. For one night only, in celebration of the release of his newest novel HELLWORLD, Tom brings together a group of local actors he’s worked with before and will present a live performance showcase of short horror stories, both classical and original. And maybe, if we’re lucky (unlucky?) enough, Tom will also read one of his first stories, written in 1988, and hold it up for public mockery! It’s a an hour of both chills and laughs suitable for people over 13. Don’t miss it!
