Funding the Writer’s Life: One Author’s Journey
October 13, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Beyond the sage advice to just not quit your day job, how exactly does today’s writer fund her literary pursuits? One answer—diversify your sources of income. Author Mardi Link has been published by a university press, freelanced for local and regional publications, received grants, written for free, and even used Kickstarter, a new crowd-sourcing website, to keep the words coming. She also recently signed with a New York literary agent who sold her memoir to Knopf at action. Link will discuss the ins and outs of each funding source and offer insight into how to keep economics from getting in the way of inspiration.
