Events like these are a great way to get out there, to meet people who are in the industry and get first hand advice from those who have made it. Attend or volunteer, it doesn't matter how you do it, just find away to get there. Look at some of these topics:
- It Books: Four YA Writers Discuss What’s Hot and What’s Not
- Writer Idol
- Cartooning: You Can Do It Too!
- And more
See if there any events like these in your area. It just might be fun. If you're interested in the Boston Book Festival, click here.
