The Author Pow Wow will not only provide you with all the knowledge you need to do what works, but will also connect you to the people who can help you in the process. During an intimate and intensive two days, authors, soon-to-be authors, publishers, publicists, marketers, agents, speaking experts, social media strategists, and business people who have great ideas to share, gather, listen, converse, and leave more informed and better at what they do. Knowledge and insight are gained, partnerships form, deals get made, and connections are built that lead to possibilities never before imagined.
Hosted since 2005 by 800-CEO-READ at various locations in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Austin, this year we'll return to sunny Austin, TX, and the historic Driskill Hotel. More info on panels and presentations forthcoming, but expect a broad overview of perspectives from key people in the industry.
Don’t just take our word about what a great event this is. Read what authors Chris Guillebeau and Sally Hogshead had to say:
"Why go to an 8CR Pow-Wow? Simply put: there's no other event like it. Where else can you talk book strategy with other authors, receive direct input from publishers, and - but wait, there's more - meet the folks who run the world's best business book distributorship? The gang in Milwaukee puts on a good show... make the time to attend!" - Chris Guillebeau, (author of The Art of Non-Conformity)
"My first year attending the 800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow, I met the agents who changed the course of my career. The next year, I met the team who helped me launch and promote my next book, Fascinate. Last year, I gained the very specific insights that are helping to catapult my business in new ways. This event isn't just about authoring business books-- this is the must-attend conference for anyone dedicated to big ideas, high expectations, and long-lasting results." - Sally Hogshead (author of Fascinate)
Cost includes event sessions, buffet breakfast and lunch served on each day of the event, plus a special group dinner outing.
Hope to see you at the event!
