The Sunday Star, 9 January 2005:
If you are an aspiring writer who would like to learn
more about your craft, as well as the book industry
then you should join the KL Writers' Club.
The club, which is sponsored by MPH in cooperation with
Content Cradle, an online service that helps local writers
get published, is open to all budding writers and there is
no joining fee.
Members are invited to meet on the third Saturday of
each month from 11am to 12:30pm, in the Booker Room
at the MPH Megastore, 1 Utama, Bandar Utama, Selangor.
Each meeting, aside from being a networking platform
for aspiring writers, will focus on a specific subject
relating to book publishing and writing, and guest
speakers will be invited to give talks relating to
their area of expertise.
The topics for the first three meetings are:
January - The editorial process (drafting a manuscript,
ghost-writing, copy editing, proof-reading, etc.
February - Book distribution.
March - Promotion and marketing.
Participants will receive a 15% discount voucher for one
book by any local author, to be purchased at the store.
Refreshments will be served. To sign up for the first
meeting, contact the Customer Service Desk at 03-77269003.
