March 20, 2010 Meeting of Heart of Denver Romance Writers
"Lessons From the Day Job"
Addison Fox will take you through some tips and tools for maximizing your professional image and communication with the publishing industry.
Several years ago, Addison had the startling realization that her day job in advertising had a number of similarities to the publishing industry. This realization helped her gain some perspective on her publishing journey and she's anxious to share what she's learned (and continues to learn!) about how to balance your creative needs as a writer with the business constraints of the publishing industry.
** Learn some of the most ideal methods - and times - of communication
** Get some tips for making your communication stand out
** Understand the opportunities for networking that are out there - things for all different personality types and comfort levels
** Gain an understanding of why you really shouldn't fear editors or agents, but how you can maximize your communication with them.
The session will be fun and interactive. Additionally, we'll use the lesson as a jumping off point for setting up a query system to constantly keep work out for review.
