Tips for Leading a Conference Workshop

Promoting yourself as a writer

Participating in writing conferences, either as a panelist, lecturer, or as a workshop leader is a great way to get your name and book out in public and to network with other writers like you

Being a presenter comes with tasks, but the challenge is not impossible. I’d like to offer you some  guidelines to help you be as succesful as you can be to:

  • Respond to a presenters’ request for proposal,
  • Adhere to a list of conference presenter’s guidelines, and
  • Develop a workshop that keeps the promises you proposed – in the specified allotted time.<!–more–>

Do You Have a Story To Share But You Aren't a Writer?

We have helped many people whose lives demanded to be recorded but who themselves There is a difference between proofreading and editing.were not writers to create interesting and well-written memoirs.

We listen to you speak your story. We ask you a multitude of questions. Then we get to work writing. We come back to you with text and you make lots of corrective comments and we ask you a whole lot of new questions. Then, we go back to writing again.

Over time, your story develops into a memoir—one that you have shaped at every stage of the writing process.

We offer a free consult. Call today at 207-353-5454 to make an appointment.

    I appreciated your outline, Madeline. I don’t do this very often but sometimes I find myself in front of people and I’ve forgotten some important support—like magic markers to write with on the flip charts. I’ll be saving this post and referring to it next time I do a presentation. Thanks.
