My idea is to host three summits a year: plot, style, and “marketing.”
The Plot Summit will return in October.
But I’m planning a new event for July. It’s called “Find Your Next Reader.”
It’s not a book marketing summit. Rather, it’s about connecting with a reader today, wherever you are in your writing / publishing journey. This summit is all about making contact with the outside world as part of your writing practice & about sharing the process with an audience.
This could be about building a mailing list or starting a Youtube channel. It could also be about hosting a small local event, entering writing contests, submitting work to magazines…
I already have a starting range of speakers, but I would LOVE to hear your recommendations.
Who would you like to hear from?
What writers are good at newsletters? Youtube? Social media?
What writing companies / brands email you a lot and seem to be big on building a community?
More importantly, perhaps: what would you like to learn from such an event?
