SFCC Library proudly presents distinguished author Michael McGarrity for the lecture, “How Writers Sabotage themselves and What to Do About it.” The free online talk from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15 will be presented on Zoom.

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.
You can read an engaging interview from Santa Fe New Mexican’s Pasatiempo Feb. 11 story, “Hard won: Author Michael McGarrity writes from experience”
