Napa Valley Writers will host its first “Writers Support Group,” with club members giving their knowledgeable input on three valuable subjects.

How to Become Your Own Publisher and Retain Control of Your Writing Project: Patsy Ann Taylor, author of Stealing Home, and Marilyn Campbell, author of Trains to Concordia, will speak about their path to self-publishing and how to do it right the first time around.

Five ways to Know Your Critique Group is Right for You: Napa Valley Writers President, Kathleen Thomas, will speak on the value of critique groups.

Social Media: Grow Your Audience and Get Noticed: Kymberlie Ingalls, who writes the blog Writer of the Storm, and Sarita Lopez, who has a cult following on Instagram, will discuss popular hashtags, blogs to follow, social media platforms and more.

Three groups will be created and each group will spend 15-20 minutes at each subject table. If a member has a specific question they would like answered, please email beforehand to publicity_nvw@outlook.com. At the end of our small group time, we’ll convene for a discussion of the recent survey completed by Napa Valley Writers.


Patsy Ann Taylor, NVW member reader, will read “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” one of the selections from the Lucky Shorts Contest. Her prize-winning poetry and short stories have been published in numerous literary journals and anthologies. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Sisters in Crime, and the Napa Valley and Santa Rosa branches of the California Writers Club.
