The Business of Business Writing – Strategies for Successful Freelancers in a Well-paid Niche

The Book-In-Hand Roadshow joins The Publishing School for Writers in presenting two seasoned writers talking about the business of writing about business.

JT Long, Executive Editor of Streetwise Reports, has literally worked both sides of the business writing street.  Her journalism career includes being Managing Editor at Comstock's Business, California Correspondent at McGraw Hill's Engineering News-Record, freelance assignments for both local and national publications, and years as an editor hiring freelancers. She knows the pitfalls and success strategies for each and is happy to share that knowledge with you. 

  • How to get assignments and influence editors.
  • Be your own dream team: CEO, COO, CMO, CFO and barista.
  • 10 things you should - and should never, ever - say to an editor. 
Jennifer Basye Sander, former Random House editor and the NYT bestselling author of more than fifty published books (including The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Published) will examine the world of business books.  Many of the top selling books in the past decade have been business-related, is there still room for more?  

  • Is there still a market for business books?
  • How do you get the credentials?
  • Should you self pub your own business advice book?

Hello Fellow Writers,
       Other writers ask me, “What do you write?”  As the author of two multi-award-winning business books, I proudly reply, “I write business books,” and they give me that business books aren’t sexy look.                     
       It's my pleasure to join The Publishing School for Writers in hosting what is sure to be an insightful discussion about the ins-and-outs of business writing. And, I’m sure we’ll get some tips on how to make it sexy. Please join me.
