Speakers Bureau

Do you plan events and engage speakers for almost any age group? Are you in need of a published writer to explain the nuts and bolts of what they do?  To encourage others?  Our speakers are fluent in many fields of writing including crafting both fiction and non, most genres, and journalism. Many can explain the nuts and bolts of how they got published and how they freelance for a living. As time goes by, we'll be signing up more speakers.
