I have been speaking about content creation, fiction writing, social media, and technology for writers since 2012. I bring to the stage—or the workshop table—years of professional experience designing company-wide training programs, and guiding individuals in precise skill development.
What do I talk about? As a successful freelance writer, I can speak with experience about networking, how to market yourself and your skills, and I bring a ton of energy to the stage!
I also specialize in teaching essential skills to fiction writers starting out, including: character development, drafting, editing, finding an agent, and more. I can teach from a stage, or on the ground in a workshop environment.
My resume of speaking engagements include:
SCBWI Oregon’s “The Next Level” Professional Series — Scrivener Secrets
Willamette Writers Conference 2014 — Using Social Media to Engage Younger Readers (read the notes as recorded by Will Hertling)
Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association (PNBA) 2015 — Social Media for the Nervous
Hire me for your next writer’s conference, workshop, or seminar series!
