All
In this webinar Carly Findlay will discuss how emerging (and established) writers can get published, ways to pitch, writing as personal and political, coping with trolling and connecting with others in the writing community.

This webinar is part of the Write-ability Goes Regional and Online program for writers with disability, but it is open to all.

You will learn:

  • how to find your writing voice
  • how to pitch to editors and publishers
  • how to cope with criticism
  • where to build connections
  • should you write for free?
