Join Cancer Services for
“You are a writer”
Featured speaker: Erik Deckers, Professional Blog Services in Indianapolis
Tuesday, June 12
11:30 - 1 p.m.
Many bloggers think of themselves only as bloggers, not writers. They limit themselves as to what they can write just by placing only one — or even the wrong one — label on themselves. This talk is supposed to get bloggers and other written communicators to think of themselves as Writers.
Erik Deckers will discuss lessons he's learned over the years, such as how to start thinking of yourself as a writer, where to find inspiration, what we can learn from the world of novels, poetry, journalism, and even politics.
He will share stories from his own past, stories from others' past, and hopefully get the audience to stop thinking of themselves as mere bloggers and electronic scribblers, and start thinking of themselves as wordsmiths.
Cost to attend is a $10 donation to Cancer Services, which includes a light lunch. Space is limited, so sign up today!
