ASJA's 49th Annual Writers Conference — Now Virtual!
ASJA is excited to offer a virtual version of our 2020 Annual Conference, originally scheduled in April. Throughout the months of July, August, and September, we will offer a full menu of recorded and live webinars led by the leading experts in their fields to help you navigate the world of independent writing—especially during a global pandemic.
The sessions for each month will center on one of three tracks. In July, we’ll offer sessions on journalism: how to pitch, whom to pitch, and how to get paid. August is all about content marketing, with sessions on breaking into content marketing and growing your client list. We’ll wrap up our virtual conference in September with a month of webinars about book publishing, including getting an agent and marketing your book.
Each month, we’ll also offer sessions that apply to independent writing in general, including deepening your research skills, working with podcasts or radio, and mastering the interview. In addition, we’re planning subject-specific breakout sessions, during which you can chat with those who have similar professional interests.
Sessions will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET. A full schedule will be posted soon. Recordings are free for those who attended the session and will be made available for purchase for those who did not register.
