Why should I attend?

Because you want to improve your writing.

Because you're determined to be published.

Because you'd love to have lunch with a favorite author.

Because you want an agent to fall in love with your project.

Because you're eager to commune with other writerly folk.

Because you hope to have a chat with that intriguing person who shows up at Writers Read occasionally.

Because you love books and you think you can write one.

Because you've heard the Fallbrook Library is rich with the work of local artists—and it has a green roof—and lots of books.

Because you're tired of the solitary life of a writer and you want to start a read-and-critique group.
