The Pocono Liars Club is here to support local authors with the help they need.
MEETINGS: We meet every third Wednesday at 7 pm at the Hughes Library in Stroudsburg. There are no dues or other requirements.
GUEST SPEAKERS: We are planning to have guest speakers at our meetings from time to time. Announcements will be made here and on our Facebook page.
WRITERS CONFERENCE: We have an annual Writers Conference, usually held in January.
AUTHORS LISTING: If you are a published author and wish to be listed here on our web page, please write a short bio and include links to your web page, your Amazon page, and a small picture and email that to us. We reserve the right to edit the bio for space and clarity as well as the right to deny posting your information for good reason (such as you’re not really from the Poconos).
FACEBOOK: The Facebook page is where our members can ask questions about writing or discuss issues of importance to writers. You can share blog posts about writing that you think may be of interest, too.
It is also used to announce any new projects you have that are being published or if you’re doing a book signing or other appearance.
You can also post announcements about writing contests, seminars, and calls for stories.
What we DON’T want on the Facebook page are the following:
1. Constant posts about your book when there really is no new news about it. This is not a place for you to advertise.
2. Posts about your books when you’re not one of our local people. This is a place for Pocono writers. If you’re from somewhere else, you can be a member — especially if you are adding good content to the discussions — but please, don’t just be there with the sole purpose of promoting yourself.
There seems to be hundreds of Facebook pages for writers and all too often, they turn into spam pages for writers to try to get people to buy their books. We don’t want that to happen to us.
