My Big Break image

What can we learn from the most recently successful writers among us? Those of us who were, maybe just a year or two ago, fighting like the rest of us for the big break, to make ends meet and to start to make money from what we love.

  • What ideas made them stand out?
  • What relationships were critical?
  • What strategies did they employ?
  • What fears did they overcome and how did they do it?
  • What magic (well not so magic really) ingredient did they have?
  • What has happened since?
  • What advice would they offer us?

Many of our speakers have decades of success behind them. The writers in this session are just a rung or two above us on the ladder. Their advice, insight and experience will feel essential to any writer who is close to success…
