Marketing Ideas From Cheri Cowell

Cheri CowellWriters go where writers gather. Let me be bold and say, if you are calling yourself a writer, you will be at a writers’ conference this year. I know, you don’t have the money; I don’t know your family situation. You are right. I had those same obstacles my first years in this business, but I wrote articles that paid $10 and $20 to pay for my first conference–a lot of articles. I found solutions to my family issues because I was determined to be where writers are.

I knew I needed to attend conferences for instruction, inspiration, and networking if I were ever to land a contract. Eventually I got that first contract, and I attribute it to faithfully attending writers’ conferences. Here is a list of where writers will be in 2016. Make a plan today to be with them.
