Book Publishers Northwest May 16th, 4-6:00 p.m. "Managing Your Career as a Writer" panel with Ingrid Ricks and Waverly Fitzgerald
As an author, you need to think about more than the current book you’re working on. You need to think about the next book, as well as your platform and perhaps yourself as a brand. The panelists will share how they created careers as writers while working with small and traditional presses as well as self-publishing. Tips on book launch parties, securing on-going writing engagements, creating a buzz, staying motivated in a very competitive market and more will be shared.
