(Nationwide) — Black Writers on Tour and the Southern California Black Business and Tech Expo will partner this year to produce a powerful one-day virtual event. Produced by Dr. Rosie Milligan, the event will be held online on Saturday, October 10, 2020, from 10 am to 4 pm via a platform called Hopin. Both authors and entrepreneurs are invited to participate in a conference that will be more dynamic than ever with seminars, workshops, and exhibits.
The event’s theme for 2020 is “Literacy is Everybody’s Business—Literacy + Technology Changes Lives,” and participants will learn how to intertwine tech and literacy in the 21st century.
This year’s event will connect writers with readers while also connecting consumers with Black-owned business owners. Workshops throughout the day will cover a variety of topics including “How To Write, Publish and Sell Your Book Made Simple,” “How to Write a Best-Selling Novel,” “Protecting Your Writing Rights, Trademark and Patent Rights,” “How to Develop Characters That Leap Off The Page,” “How to Operate a Home-Based Business,” “Tax Compliance & Recordkeeping,” and many more.
Attendance at past events has surpassed 3,000. General admission is free. Visit BlackWritersonTour.com
