Pre-Writing Seminar

last updated 10.28.2014

Once again, this year’s Pre-Writing Seminar was a great success! We’d like to thank everyone who attended and who who presented. Below are some of the resources from this year’s presentations.  Enjoy!


When: Saturday, October 18th from 1:30 to 4:30

Where: Off the Beaten Path Books & Emporium

Address: 33314 Grand River Avenue, Farmington, MI

OTBP is located on the main strip of Downtown Farmington.  Parking is available behind the establishment, at the plaza across the street, and (if you are lucky) in one of the spots on the street. Last year was a very popular success, so if you are hoping to grab a good spot to sit, we suggest you arrive early. Food and drink will be available for purchase at OTBP. As Sal (the owner) has always been very warm, welcoming, and kept the door open for us, we kindly ask no outside food or drink.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
