I've presented several programs in recent months, including chairing and speaking on a panel about pitching to editors at the first-ever literary conference of Writers and Books (WAB) in Rochester, NY, and holding several classes for Writers and Books; speaking on a freelancing panel at the annual conference of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) in Baltimore; and presenting a session about launching a communications consulting business at the Heritage Region conference of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) in Richmond, VA. (If you need information about these topics, let me know — I can usually arrange special offerings.) I also did several webinars for the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) recently, including sessions on “Marketing Online and Off,” “Basics of Editing & Proofreading,” and “Freelancing 101: Launching Your Editorial Business.

Watch this space for new online and in-person presentations in upcoming months.
