SPEAKER: My name is Julianna Scott and I will be the one offering this workshop. I've been a writer for several years now, and have two published works out now, with several al more on the way. I've been published by both large and small houses, been through the ringer that is finding an agent, traversed the mountains of marketing and promotion, but what really make me qualified than anything to lead a workshop like this is that I have made TONS of mistakes, and have learned from every single one, and I can love sharing what I've learned to help others on their way. I have lead workshops like this both online and in person at writing conferences around the US including Romance Writers of America's National Convention and the yearly Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention.
Registration will remain open until January 10th, or until we reach 100 attendees, whichever comes first, so don't wait!
