Workshop: Size Matters
Geri Foster

Presented by Geri Foster

SIZE MATTERS: Short Stories, Novellas, and Serials

This workshop will be hands on with everyone participating as we go along. We’ll discuss exactly what the lengths of works are from short stories to sagas and everything in between.
* How to make even the shortest story work for you.
* Short doesn’t mean faster, and what if you don’t write fast? It doesn’t mean just more titles either.
* Why iBook is the place to sell shorter stories and novellas
* What to do with all those short stories
* Have you considered a Serial? Don’t be frightened, it’s not painful, I promise.
*What’s the best genre for short stories and Serials?
*How to get noticed no matter what you write

Geri Foster will bring her expertise to this workshop when she will answer questions about the size of books, how to market them, and what to expect from the reader. How to make money selling short stories, novellas and serials.
