1F: Networking for Reticent Writers FULL
Limited Capacity filling up

Networking. The word strikes fear and ugh into writers from all genres and backgrounds. We know it's good for our careers, but we can't bring ourselves to show up for that happy hour or cocktail party or event. But it doesn't have to be so hard.

Building a writing community is one of the best ways to set yourself up for success when the time comes to step into the publishing spotlight. In this session, you'll pick up some strategies for offline and online networking that will help debut—and even experienced—authors break the fear, build confidence, and learn to see networking less as a chore and more as a powerful and rewarding way to build your writing community, which can pay dividends—both for your career and your personal life. You might even have fun in the process. Guiding you is introvert-turned-sometimes-extrovert debut author Kelly J. Ford, whose small efforts brought big rewards on her own journey as a debut author.
