Limited Capacity seats available

Courtney Maum has worked on 4 book projects with her agent: two with “Big 5” publishers and two with indie presses, and a current collaboration on a film adaptation of one of Courtney’s books. Throughout her career, Courtney's agent has stepped in to act as her editor, her publicist, her film agent and her producer, effectively becoming a brand manager who has encouraged Courtney to diversify her income stream through screenwriting, newsletters, original audio content, webinars, and other creative ideas. Courtney has had to learn what to say yes to, and when to push back so that she can protect the time and quiet she needs to write her fiction. In this extremely candid discussion, Courtney will discuss what it takes to make a living as a modern writer in the current publishing arena, without the writer feeling like you are “selling out.”
