Tables:

The Redwood Writers booth will include several tables for our members to promote and sell their books and/or author services. Depending upon the number of signups for each day, we expect each table will display two or three members.

Display your books, advertising materials, promotional items, and so on. If you are selling items, we suggest that you have a Seller's Permit. (CLICK HERE to visit The Board of Equalization for more information regarding obtaining a seller's permit.)

Registrants will be responsible for their own sales (cash, credit, and so on).

Sign up to volunteer!

One table will sell RW anthologies and merchandise, and promote the club. We invite any members to volunteer to work at this table with a board member, help manage the booth, and assist our author and vendor speakers.

Public Readings & Tips

Every half hour, signups will have an opportunity to read from their books or speak about writing- and author-related tips to the public. A microphone will be set up for our speakers. We ask that you please keep your topics family-friendly.
