CONFERENCE 

 CANCELED

It is with heavy hearts that due to the current pandemic, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Sonoma County Writers Conference on May 2, as well as postpone our other upcoming public gatherings in April.

As a way to keep our writing community safe from the risk of illness due to the coronavirus, the Redwood Writers board is adhering to the directives of the CDC, state, and local authorities regarding large gatherings.

The board will continue evaluating coronavirus-related conditions, and we plan to reschedule the conference at a later date. Currently, the May 17 meeting is still scheduled, however it to is subject to cancellation. Updates will be announced via e-mail, the newsletter, the website, and social media.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Best health,

The Redwood Writers Board

Submit with Style: Confidently and Correctly Prepare Your Manuscript for Contests and Publications
with
Judy Baker

Many of us have learned the hard way: ignore submission requirements at your peril. You can’t get published if your manuscript gets thrown out for failing to follow the rules.

Learn the easy way to format your work for success. Judy Baker will demonstrate how to use styles and create and templates in Microsoft Word. Styles and templates are like proven recipes—they help you get the results you want each time you use them.

Master these methods and you can concentrate on creativity and get published.

Judy Baker helps creatives get past the barriers that hold them back. She is an author, course creator, curious entrepreneur, and serves as Membership Chair for Redwood Writers.
