Let’s Talk About… Finance for Writers



Sam Ryan and Brodie Lancaster




Writers often spend hours learning about craft, only to find themselves adrift when it comes to finances. It’s necessary to develop business skills, or outsource assistance, in order to build a sustainable career. Sam Ryan, a finance professional with speciality in writing, and Brodie Lancaster, a writer with experience in both short- and long-form projects, regularly work together; in this session, they’ll offer advice from two different perspectives.
