The Gulf Coast Writers Association will meet Saturday, Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Zion Lutheran Church, 7401 Winkler Road, Fort Myers. The guest speaker will be award-winning author Richard Georgian, whose topic will be "The Road to Publication,"
Georgian will take you on a journey leading to the eventual publication of your work, answering the questions: "Where does the road start? How do you get to your destination? What preparations do you need to make?"
To find the elusive publisher you will tour non-paid publishing houses, semi-paid publishing, self-publishing, and paid publishing.
Georgian is a graduate of the University of Maryland, University College, with a Bachelor of Science degree (Cum Laude) in industrial education. He graduated from the U.S. Navy's instructor course, designed curriculum and taught courses for six years.
Georgian was the president of Gulf Coast Writers Association for three years and is the current corporate chairman. His book "Cossacks, Indians and Buffalo Bill" won the Stuart Thayer Prize from the Circus Historical Society in 2012.
