Feel like you've been writing for years, but hardly anyone knows? This workshop breaks down seven steps for defining your niche and promoting your published work. We'll discuss putting your writing talent to work to create a variety of content, plus the importance of identifying which personal strengths can be leveraged to maximize your professional expertise and lived experiences to secure paid opportunities.
