Hybrid Hillsboro: Writing a Novel or Memoir with Abigail Raeke

February 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Willamette Writers Hillsboro Presents

Five Essential Phases of Writing a Novel or Memoir with Abigail Raeke

On February 14, 2023, at 6:30 PM, please join book coach Abigail Raeke for a discussion on five essential phases of writing a novel or memoir. Writing a book can be an overwhelming endeavor, but breaking down the process brings clarity and inspiration. We’ll discuss when to hire a book coach or developmental editor (and the difference between the two) as well as resources and tips for each writing phase.
