February 2010 Meeting

February 1, 2010
7 p.m.
Barnes & Noble
Park Meadows

Speaker: Kristine Pratt

Topic: “Gap Publishing: Written World Communications & Publishing into the Future”

Kristine Pratt has rattled around the publishing industry for a few years now. She started out as a writer, like most do. But it quickly became evident that helping others to get published was a great deal more fun and rewarding than seeing her name in print. She's apprenticed to Terry Burns of Hartline Literary Agency, and from there started pestering Jeff Gerke of Marcher Lord Press to teach her everything he knows. Throughout this all, she's worked as freelance editor and writing mentor. In the fall of 2009 with the support of her husband and five children, Kristine banded together a dozen individuals and formed Written World Communications, a traditional publishing house with an emphasis on what she calls gap publishing. In 2010 expect to see several books and magazines going into print, as WWC explodes onto the publishing scene.
