Presentations for writers

Taming Technology: Using technology to help you write.

This presentation is intended to introduce writers to technology they may already have and to some that is available free, or at an affordable price. We’ll discuss how text-to-speech can help find trouble spots in a story. Discover how the macro feature in Word can highlight all those unwanted “weedy words” in an entire manuscript. Learn about programs that can help track scenes, chapters, and characters. Plus lots more because technology doesn’t have to be scary.

Working With a Small Publisher: Is a small publisher a good fit for me?

In this session, we’ll discuss some of the pros and cons of working with a small publisher. Small publishers can be a great stepping-stone, or a perfect lifetime fit for authors. From submission to book launch and beyond this presentation is meant to help authors know what to expect, when signing with a small publisher.
