Best-selling, award-winning thriller author Jenny Milchman will debut her newest interactive workshop on May 3rd: “Staying Alive in this Business: Developing Your Author Brand.” We have a few open seats remaining for this.
The workshop applies to both traditionally and self-published authors, as both paths facilitate the development of a brand in different ways. Jenny truly believes that creating this brand is the best predictor of ultimate success and longevity as an author.
By the end of this workshop, you will have a much better understanding of your own brand possibilities and an action-list of ways to build on your distinctive qualities, find and grow your audience, and create/augment your platform.
Open spots also exist for the May 3rd Editor Q&A Panel, where eight editors who represent Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Tor, Amazon, and others answer your questions about the craft and business of writing from the publishers’ perspective, including how they work with authors, the current state of the publishing industry, the different roles within publishing firms, creative control and collaboration, and whatever else you want to ask about.
For the remaining activities–pitch meetings, query letter critique, and agent Q&A panel–we have waitlists available. Please contact Atlanta Writers Conference Director George Weinstein at email@example.com to learn how long the waitlist queues are for the activities that interest you.
