July 24th: Finding Community

join us for a discussion on finding your writing tribe
Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt alone as a writer?

Writing is a solitary thing. A lot of the time we like it that way. But a lot of the time we crave company too, and finding it among like-minded writers can be the best company of all.

Come talk with us about places you’ve looked for community, where you’ve had success finding it, and challenges you’ve faced on the journey.

Sunday 7:00 pm EST on #RWChat. See you there!

Twitter for Writers / First Chat Transcript

Twitter is a great big open platform. Knowing what you should, shouldn’t, and can be doing on it can be daunting. Rachel Miller and Brenda Drake — two twitter powerhouses who have taken the sales and publishing worlds by storm — answered questions on how to leverage twitter for your career without feeling like a book-link megaphone.

Guest Hosts:

Rachel Miller


Host of #SBizHour, Excellence Officer at Broadsuite Media Group, Chief Listener at Nimble. Rachel is an industry leader in influence marketing with close to a decade of experience building strong brand communities through social media.

Brenda Drake


Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. She hosts workshops and contests such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. When she’s not writing or hanging out with her family, she haunts libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or reads someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment). She’s represented by Peter Knapp at Park Literary. Look for her upcoming novel from Entangled Teen LIBRARY JUMPERS, releasing January, 2016.
