Collaborating for Success: No Writer is an Island

March 6 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

$20.00 – $25.00

Regardless of which path you pursue as an author, collaboration is going to be a key element along the way.  Yes, what an author does, especially when sitting alone in front of a keyboard and composing words, can be a solitary pursuit. But when it comes to all other aspects of a writer’s life, real success comes from the collaborations made along the way. Whether it’s a collaboration with an editor, an agent, a publisher, or even a DIY self-publishing platform, virtually every other important task in your writing life will include some sort of collaboration. How can you navigate these relationships and the challenges that come with them in order to achieve your long-term goals for writing success? Ultimately, all of the steps taken along the way lead to that most unique and intimate collaboration all authors desire — the beautiful poetic and magical dance that results when the right writer and the right reader connect.  Magic can happen, but there are systematic and logical ways that you can use to ensure the right collaborations to achieve your ultimate writing and publishing goals.
