It’s time to renew your connection with the best writing resource in Colorado—Colorado Authors’ League. June is the month to renew your membership. It is time. Now. And if you look back on the past year and consider what CAL offered you, how can you pass up the promise of an even more rewarding year ahead:
*One of the best writing contests in the U.S., open to nearly every writing category, with cash awards and marketing rewards like an invitation to read at the Tattered Cover.
*First-class annual awards banquet that has become one of Denver’s premiere literary events with best-selling guests like Clive Cussler, Sandra Dallas, Peter Heller, Margaret Coel and Robert Greer.
*Holiday seasonco-op book booth where you can sign and sell your books to Colorado shoppers—this November 6-7-8 at the Colorado Country Christmas Show.
*The best web site for writers in Colorado, coloradoauthors.org, where you can market your writing for free by posting your signings, speaking events, new releases, author profile, book covers and special announcements.
*The Second Saturday Series, a lineup of programs to help you improve your writing and the arsenal of skills you need to market and sell it. Programs are designed and based on feedback from CAL members and this past year covered freelance markets, pitching stories, how to market, interviewing techniques, screenwriting, negotiating book deals, and the all-day Writing Craft Fair and Genre Fest.
*Monthly InPrint newsletter with topics keyed to upcoming programs, some written by CAL members, and an open invitation to submit your article or suggestion.
*The annual CAL Christmas Party, where you can meet fellow authors and share your challenges and successes.
