About this Event

Writing is an art, but if you want to make writing your career, it needs to be a business, too.

During this session on Sept. 10 from 7-8:30 p.m., we’ll talk about how to interweave your interests and aspirations with viable ways of making money as a writer — it literally pays to develop your brand and your message.

From crafty networking tactics to lesser-known types of writing assignments, you’ll walk away with a clearer idea of which direction to take next. Successful writers are also organized businesspeople!
