Shepherd to present "Secrets from the Contest Queen" August 10th in Norman, Oklahoma
Award-winning author, Barbara Shepherd, is scheduled to speak at the monthly meeting of Norman Galasy of Writers on Saturday 10th at 10:00 a.m. in Norman. Her books include: River Bend, The Potbelly Pig Promise, Vittles and Vignettes, and Patchwork Skin.

As the recipient of more than 350 writing awards in local, regional, national, and international contests for fiction, non-fiction, screenplay, and poetry, she will present “Secrets from the Contest Queen.” Look for answers to: Why should anyone enter writing contests? She will share tips on what to enter and in which categories, what not to enter, why rules are so important, how to handle critiques, how to make the best use of your time, and forms she designed to keep track of submissions, contest entries, and awards.
Barbara displays four more wins at the OWFI Conference 2019, along with the help of her Doodle and Peck Publishing friend, Marla F. Jones.
