~ Quote from Diana Schneidman, author and marketer

Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips for Writers

"I have been a professional writer 40 years, and am also a tenured full professor of journalism. Carolyn's Sharing with Writers newsletter is  most useful for me--and for my students. I emphasize to them that while research is 90% of writing, and the actual writing is about 10%, there's another 100% out there called promotion. Carolyn shows numerous ways to get the message to the mass media."
~Walter Brasch, author and educator

"A decade of bettering writers' careers with how-tos, tips, and publishing news."


Unsolicited Endorsement

Hi Carolyn:
Just a note of thanks for your workshop Saturday. Of the six or so workshops I've taken through UCLA, yours had the most energy.
 I've reviewed all my notes and I've listed eight ideas that I can implement fairly quickly, this in addition to strategies for cover design and Web site. I'll be Googling "tolerance" by the end of September. Actually, I just added the word "tolerance" to my book's subtitle. So, thanks a whole lot.
~ Johnny McReynolds. author of
Vanished: Lompoc's Japanese, Intolerance when Good People Stand By
