Past Webinars

July 28th – Publish With a Partner: Do It Yourself Doesn’t Mean Do It Alone.

Ramona Pina and Lucy Briggs of BookBaby

There is some misconception about how one must take the reigns entirely themselves or lose control of their work. Perhaps we can dispel this myth and show how writers can sell directly to readers and build their author platform with a partner AND retain control and independence.

ProWritingAid AJ OgilvieMay 28th – A conversation with AJ Ogilvie of ProWritingAid on the fundamentals of clarity, why clarity matters, and why it means so much for our readers.

To be sure, all writers believe in the value of clarity, and as readers we can confidently describe a sentence or paragraph as clear or unclear. But most of us don’t really know the specifics of how clarity is produced. In this webinar we talk about how to craft sentences that produce clarity for readers, how to effectively organize information for readers, and how we can create writing that provides a fluid reading experience for our audience.
