From Writer to Author
May 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$39
Writing is largely a solitary act focused on creating. But after that creation is published, the writer must be public, and focus on the business of writing. This panel of published authors, publishing and marketing experts, will share strategies for mapping the path from writer to author by capitalizing on your individual, personal and professional strengths. We offer practical advice and strategies for how to manage the shock of the transition and create steps for selling your book and your brand, whether or not you have an agent.
