Michael McGarrity is a clinical social worker, New York Times best-selling novelist with 17 books in print, and originator of the SFCC Richard Bradford Memorial Creative Writing Scholarship.

The best-selling novelist will discuss the pitfalls aspiring writers face as they strive to break into print. Issues will include setting unrealistic expectations, overcoming rejection, falling into the trap of self-publishing, over-reliance on the opinion of others, a reluctance to recognize technical and creative flaws, and an unwillingness to persevere and make lifestyle sacrifices.

The free online lecture will be presented on Zoom https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WritersSabatogeMcGarrity Registrants will receive an email with a Zoom link the morning of the event.
