Tips and pointers from Visiting Agent April Eberhardt

AWW enjoyed learning from visiting agent April Eberhardt of Kimberley Cameron & Associates. Assistant Director Holly Hudson and Workfellow Wes Gilbert share these three tips from her talk:

1. April points out that self-publishing will increasingly become a viable alternative for many writers--for example, if you're a writer who gives speeches on a specific topic, and you have a book that is about that topic.

2. Whether you're published traditionally or not, you will need to be proactive about promoting your work.

3. Remember, as a writer you want to reach readers... and after you've written a great book, essay, poem, or story, you need to find ways to connect with them, whether through a blog, epublishing or other growing ways of publishing, so stay up-to-date on new technology.

Next year's workshop will be July 9-15, 2011.
