Many of our members are award-winners, both locally and nationally, as well as best-selling authors.


Upcoming Webinar: December 9, 2023 (11:00am-12:30pm Mountain Time)

Learn about the opportunities the education market has for freelance authors! In this presentation Laura Perdew, an author with over ten years experience writing for the education market, provides a step-by-step guide to breaking into this market including how to approach educational publishers and generate a writing sample (even if you are pre-published!). She will also discuss how to choose assignments, research topics, write to assigned specs and reading levels, revise according to editorial feedback, and keep records. In addition, there will be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation.
