|About the Workshop
||Some people call it networking. Some people, however, think that’s far too sterile a name for something that can be so fun in a business which is so creative.
Schmoozing. That’s what we do. And we do it sincerely. When we mosey up to the book editor to introduce ourselves, we aren’t there because this is just another person in the industry. We’re there because we know that this is a person with something interesting to say. Agents, editors, authors: they all have something to offer. Their experiences, their insight. All we have to do is listen and learn.
Schmoozing 101 will help teach the participants how to make the unapproachable, approachable. We will learn how to make sure the people we talk to will know our names and remember our faces.
Whether it’s an in-person meeting, an e-mail that has to be sent, or a phone call that must be made, this class will help writers know what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. The next time you run into that famous face, they will smile and ask how you are doing.
