How to write a bestseller workshop

Here’s a workshop that writers in Singapore can look forward to attending:

“The word has more than nine lives”

Do come to our November First Friday Writers’ Corner:

Date: Friday, 6 November 2009

Time: 6:00 for 7:15 (see below)

Location: YMCA Lounge (4th floor, Orchard Road YMCA)

Topic: How to write a Bestseller

You are welcome to join us for our regular First Friday Writers’ Corner, where you can get together with other writers to discuss the art of writing. Our topic this month will be on how to write a bestseller.

Most worry about getting a publisher and being acceptable to the market before embarking on writing a book. That is fine with run-of-the-mill books and literary efforts. But the ultimate best seller must get out of that box, to be sure. Some “best sellers” remain unpublished and unheralded till well after the death of their authors. So what are the conditions and driving factors that go to make a best-seller?

The Society’s president, Maurice Neo will conduct this workshop.

The formal programme starts at 7:15 (note new time). The time between 6:00 and 7:15 is for you: if you have written anything you would like to have reviewed, come by early. We’ll be glad to provide a sounding board. All genres welcome — including bestsellers!

The YMCA Lounge is located on the fourth floor of the YMCA building, 1 Orchard Road. We may be inside the Y Cafe (turn left after exiting the elevator) or outside on the patio (go straight after exiting the elevator). We meet informally, so you can give us a ring if you don’t see us:
