Rose Marie Kern is working with literary educational organizations to bring you the information you need!

 Upcoming in 2023

You’ve done it! The story in all its glory has been written. Now What?

Writers know they have a tale to tell – just getting it all out of their head and onto the page is a challenge, and reason to celebrate. But once the euphoria of completion is settled, what comes next?
There are many steps to be taken, many decisions to be made, after the story is complete. Rose Marie Kern  will be giving two presentations in December concerning writing as a career.

 Writer to Author   

A free event sponsored by the City of Rio Rancho, NM
