Our fourth BOB Writing Series starts March 23rd!


Best of Books is proud to announce the fourth BOB Writing Series, a five-week course offering viewpoints and tips from the five important areas involving writing and publishing books! The course is intended for writers, authors and all those interested in publishing a book. With this series, you will be able to unlock the mysteries of writing, publishing, and selling a book!

This special series will take place at Best of Books on Thursdays from 6:00-7:30pm, beginning March 23rd and continuing weekly through April 20th. Registration is limited. Slots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Class size must reach 15, but will be limited to 20. Partial refunds are not offered if you miss a week.

The cost is $99.95 for the five-week course. Each evening, a different expert will discuss a perspective of book publishing, from being an author to an editor to a publisher to an agent to a bookseller. 

Speakers will be as follows:

  • Former National Geographic editor Richard Crum
  • Award-winning writer, editor, and publisher Jeanne Devlin
  • Agent and Marketer Nancy Berland
  • Pulitzer Prize-winning editor/Best of Books owner Joe Hight

Since the formation of the BOB Writing Series, TWO of its participants have become published Oklahoma bestsellers! The series has also spawned a Best of Books Writing Group - led by Writing Series participants Mike Wiley and Sharon Dodd - that meets the second Monday of every month in the store.

Best of Books will also be coordinating Advanced Writing Series sessions during this time, for an additional cost. Further details forthcoming.

Individual coaching will be offered at $50 per half-hour before/after each session (except the author's session). First come, first served. Coaching could be offered outside course.

You can register for the BOB Writing Series below or at the store by calling 405-340-9202.
