Schmoozing 101 presented by Jacqui Jacoby
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.
This workshop covers topics such as how to conduct an interview, both in person, by phone, and by e-mail. It will discuss not only should we attend a conference, but what we should do once we get there, what should we say, and how we should act.
Award-winning author, Jacqui Jacoby lives and writes in the beauty of Northern Arizona. Currently adjusting to being an empty nester with her first grandchild to draw her pictures, Jacqui is a self-defense hobbyist. Having studied martial arts for numerous years she retired in 2006 from the sport, yet still brings strength she learned from the discipline to her heroines. She is a working writer, whose career includes writing books, teaching online and live workshops and penning short nonfiction.
