NCompass Live: Engaging Writers with a Community Novel Project

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live: “Engaging Writers with a Community Novel Project”, on Wednesday, July 16, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Libraries are well positioned to encourage customers and community in fiction writing and content creation. The Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library’s Community Novel Project is an opportunity for the Topeka community to work together to conceptualize, write, edit, narrate, and publish a complete novel. Each successive year we experiment and expand our annual project to model the evolving skill set necessary for writers wishing to self-publish their own work in digital, print on demand or audiobook formats. Engage with your community of writers and readers and establish the library as a trusted resource for 21st century writers!

Presenters: Lissa Staley and Miranda Ericsson, Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library.
