A special free NE-SCBWI event:
Join author and School Visit Expert Alexis O'Neill for a focused, interactive session on school visits for published authors and illustrators. She'll address how to get school visits, what to do when you get there, how much to charge, how to make your visit memorable (in a good way, that is), how to handle the business side of appearances, and other topics of interest to the group. Hands-on activities will help you form a plan of action to implement immediately. But the key element in this workshop is sharing collective wisdom - the good, bad and the ugly - to help each other succeed in this part of our business. Bring your most current books with you. Optional: Bring along any materials you've created to promote yourself and your availability to do school visits for a quick critique.
When: Sunday, October 6, 2013
Time: 2:30 - 4:30 pm
Where: Windsor Public Library, 323 Broad Street, Windsor, CT 06095
