The Power of Connection
May 9, 2015
Hosted by Athena Dean Holtz
The power of connection is crucial if you really want to grow in your craft. Writing is a lonely business. Putting words on paper (or into your laptop) takes concentration and quiet. Coming together with other writers, authors, and professionals in the publishing industry is anything but quiet, but it's necessary. Learning from others who've been successful in their publishing journey, sitting down with an agent, editor, or publisher, having a meal with a fellow aspiring author and encouraging one another ... these are life changing moments sure to help you learn the necessary steps for you to accomplish all that God intends for your writing career. During this episode of Publishing Today, we'll be discussing the power of connection with three women who lead some of the most influential Christian writers conferences in the country.
