Making the Most of It
Presented by Sarah Kades
When Words Collide is coming up August 12-14! Sarah will give practical advice on how to make the most of your conference experience at WWC. She’ll share what she’s learned and how she approaches the conference to not only make it an incredibly fun weekend, but also how it can help your writing and career. Come to discuss everything from what to bring (like business cards), what to wear (what’s your vibe/brand?), where to take 5 (there’s a hospitality suite??), how to network (recognizing opportunities and letting your authentic self shine), and more. This is a great conference and opportunity. Let’s have some fun!
