How to Succeed in the Business of Writing: Free Kansas City Workshop

So, you’ve written your novel. What do you do now? Should you self-publish or seek out an agent or publisher?  How do you go about marketing the book? What about copyright protection? Social media? Headshots?

The modern publishing world is filled with terms that can make a writer’s head spin.

But, relax! There is a guide through the maze. If you live in the Kansas City area, you can come on Saturday, November 10, to The Business of Writing - Success, Getting the Word Out. This workshop will feature 12 "mini-sessions" in topics relevant to new as well as seasoned writers. The presenters will include professionals in fields such as selling yourself, social networking, legal issues, accounting, and even stress management.

This workshop is not about writing or editing your work. It’s about taking the next step: getting your work out there.

And best of all: the workshop is FREE!

You do not even have to register to attend, though, registering at the above site helps the event's planners know how much food to prepare.  (Yes, writers need to eat, too!)

Local authors (including me) will also be on hand to sell our books.

The Business of Writing - Success, Getting the Word Out,  a one-day event, will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, November 10, at Community Christian Church, 4601 Main, Kansas City, MO.

Don't let your novel languish in despair of ever being published or dying on the vine once it is published. Come to the workshop and find out how to get your work out there.
