On Nov. 18th, Thanks to the invitation from Hook a Sista Up (HASU) president Linda Otterbridge, I had the pleasure of attending the Women who Write Author Showcase in Grand Rapids, MI.
Women who Write is based in Grand Rapids, MI and is a group created by HASU to support Women writers and create events for entrepreneurs and writers to connect and promote their written works with Authors, Editors and Publishers all in one building at the same event. A fantastic and rare networking opportunity in Grand Rapids, MI!
This year the Women who Write Author Showcase was located in the Donnelly Center at Aquinas College. The admission was FREE and workshops were $15 each.
Author workshops were available from Author of “Writing is a Jealous Lover” Randy Otterbridge, Author of “Rise Higher” Nicole Zaagman and House Capacity Publishing Co. CEO, Kierra Jones.
There was a brief seating for guests to be introduced and learn more about each writer, editor and publisher.
Authors also had the chance to be interviewed by Radio Host Toresa Blakely of MAGIC 1049!
