Practical insights for writers from Jessica P Morrell

Portland, OR area writers I’ll be speaking on June 4

Written By: Jessica Morrell - May• 29•24


We’ve got another cloudy morning here in the Pacific Northwest as spring winds down.  I’m working on another manuscript with the deadline fast approaching–it’s the third in a thriller series and is appropriately twisty, fast-paced, and more than a little scary. As usual, I’m trying to turn up the thrill and tension.

And speaking of advice, I’m going to speak to the Portland-based Willamette Writers meeting on Tuesday, June 4th at Tabor Space located at 5441 SE Belmont. The meeting starts at 7 and my talk is  called From an Editor’s Desk. Here’s the link.

I’m giving writers advice and explain techniques that I’ve used to help writers land agents, break into publishing, break out in publishing, and write best sellers. And I’ve got a lot to say on this topic and I’m genuinely excited to share techniques–some blessedly easy to emply–that I know work.

Also, Willamette Writers is one of the largest and most successful writers’ organizations in the country. Each August Willamette Writers holds a conference that’s jammed with extraordinary speakers, workshops, and opportunities to meet pubishing professionals. I’ve helped several members land agents and publishing contracts after working with them at the conference because it actually helps make writers’ dreams come true.

There’s still time to register early. Dates are July 31-August 4th.

Meantime, if you’re in the area please drop by Tabor Space on June 4th.  Would love to see you–and chat.
