WritePitchPublish 2018!

Sponsored by Tandem Light Press, 220 Communications Inc., and Academy of Creative Coaching

Authors and aspiring authors... this experience is for you (attend in person or join via live stream)! In this day and age, being an author is no longer just about writing. It is also about making connections, wearing many hats, and running a business - the business of your book. Whether you are looking to traditionally publish or self-publish; if your book is fully written or is just a pie-in-the-sky idea, this opportunity may be ideal for you. WritePitchPublish is a hands-on, dynamic experience designed to propel authors and aspiring authors forward in the mission to finish their work with quality and to acquire a solid understanding of how the modern day publishing industry works.

With one-on-one critique sessions and the opportunity to participate in small-group masterminds, WritePitchPublish is especially ideal for ambitious writers who desire to connect with industry professionals, such as literary agents, editors, and publishers in small group settings.

This event is open to authors and aspiring authors who wish to learn from professionals, engage in the sharing of ideas, collaborate with others, and improve the approach and completion of writing projects.

1. Finishing the project
