March 22:Writers at Work Conference: How do you manage the business of being an author? As a published author, you wear many hats: writer, entrepreneur, designer, public speaker, publicist, and more. How can you manage the business side of your writing life without losing time for your art, or your other jobs, or your family? This one-day conference will provide invaluable advice you can use not just to sell more books, but to find the work-life balance that can be especially challenging for writers.
