What is it that published fiction authors know? Why are their novels published? This workshop covers some of the bumps that all writers must learn to maneuver around. Have you started in the right place? Why is a hook important? Is your writing tight? How do you make the dialogue believable? Bring your questions and we'll discuss your work.

Sarah H. Baker, author of more than 20 published novels, grew up in New Orleans and has lived all over the country from Alaska to Georgia. She holds an MS in engineering and works full time, but also writes fiction under S. H. Baker, Sarah Storme, and Lydia Parks. Sarah's publishers range from Kensington and Harlequin to small presses, one of which she worked for as an acquiring editor. Most recently, she has written award-winning full-cast audio books, and has self-published her backlist. Sarah teaches for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNM. More than anything else, she enjoys sharing her experience with other writers.


Members free, guests $10, student $5. Find more information at the SWW website:
