We’re excited to announce a new feature that will help authors keep track of live training resources and publishing events. Welcome to our Events Calendar!
Whether you’re a traditional or indie author, a newbie or a veteran, whether you’re working on your book or looking for ways to promote your already published book, you must attend book fairs and writers’ conferences. But first, you need to know when and where they are.
This is exactly what our Events Calendar helps you with.
Why attend networking events?
- Learn from peers and keep your ear to the ground for any news – it's crucial
Hear from leaders in self and traditional publishing who will offer you great advice and answer your questions. No matter where you are in your writing career or what you’re struggling with, no matter what you’re writing — fiction or nonfiction — the workshops, lectures and panels will help you improve your craft and get better at marketing.
- Schmooze – it's fun
Any event is an opportunity for you to mingle with other authors, agents, critique partners, book publishing and marketing experts. And, you never know, you might even get to pitch your book to an interested publisher.

You’ll be surrounded by people who share your enthusiasm, your passion for writing and who, perhaps, have been where you are now and would happily offer a helping hand. You’ll make new friends and share ideas. You’ll encourage each other and connect on social media channels.
