Mainline Writers Coffee House

This FREE 3-hour networking and discussion about writing and publishing meets last Sunday of the month, noon to 3 PM at The New Leaf Cafe in Rosemont, PA. Open to everyone. "It’s a bunch of writers sitting around talking about writing, with coffee. No agenda, just chat about the latest trends in the industry, about markets, about pitching and selling, about frustration, about keeping the inner fires alight, about dealing with our families, about how damn tough it is to make it as a writer at the best of times and what writers can do to stay afloat in these troubled economic waters." -- Jonathan Maberry.
