The Business of Writing: Seven People Writers Should Meet Before They Need Them

by Merien Grey

Not quite published yet or still fairly new and want to do more to further your career than write and build numbers on social media? When it comes to the business side of writing there are seven key business connections that can be made before an author “needs” them. More importantly, starting early can mean the difference in professional help an author trusts or help that will simply do. There are specific skill sets that can be very valuable to authors if they knows how to seek out professionals that have them. This class covers what the following people can do for an author and how to find, vet and take on services of a literary or intellectual property attorney, a literary accountant, webhost, insurance agent for media professionals, business specific banker, secretary of state representative and a department of revenue officer (and why you need the last two if you don’t already know). This class is about giving authors the tools they need to find service professionals they will need on their terms, budget and time frame.
