How can you make a business with your calling? A keynote address by best-selling artist, Mr. Anthony Rodriguez of AR Music Group Firm, will be sure to inspire. You'll learn about about his journey and the ability to tranform passion into profit. In our case, aspiring  and seasoned  publishers or writers will learn how to push themselves forward, prior to the panel discussion.

The educational panel discussion will bring out editors, publishers and authors to talk about their experiences and discuss key issues within writing and publishing industries. In our last mini summit, we had TV journalist  and writer  Ayesha K. Faines; Slim Jackson, editor of Singleblackmale.org; Freelance Writer,  Meghan Reid; Beauty Director of ESSENCE magazine  Corynne Corbett;  and social-media manager and founder of Michelle O' Brunch,  Chana Ewing.
