Average Girl Magazine Hosts
Author & Book Fair Symposium

RICHMOND - Calling all authors and book lovers! Average Girl, The Magazine will host the Author & Book Fair Symposium on Saturday, May 13, 2006 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wyndham Hotel, 4700 S. Laburnum Ave in Richmond, VA. The Author & Book Fair Symposium will expose book lovers to up-and-coming and well-established authors from the Richmond area, the South and Northeast. The event will also feature Essence magazine bestseller authors.

Because AVG magazine believes so strongly in the power of reading and writing, 30 minute workshops will be held in an effort to educate and inform aspiring writers about the business of writing and publishing. Topics will include:

  • How to self-publish a book
  • How to find an editor
  • Marketing 101: 10 Ways to Market your Book
  • So you want to write a book! Tips & Strategies
  • ...and much, much more!
"This is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring writers and established writers to hone their skills and network with their readers and other authors," says Rebekah L. Pierce, founder of AVG magazine. "We want to support our local and regional authors as well as inspire 'closet' writers to come out and take that leap of faith." This event will also feature some of Richmond's hottest poets in the Poetry Slam Jamboree to be hosted later that evening at a location to be announced.

The Author & Book Fair Symposium is free and open to the public. For more information, call (804) 288-0477 or email editor@averagegirlmagazinecom.
