Diversifying Your Portfolio: Do More with Less
As nonfiction writers, we generally think in two modes of production: book-length and short form. Yet there are many avenues in between and with alternatives for expanding our audiences and broadening our craft. This session shares how to branch out within the genre to diversify publication opportunities, tap into multiple markets with single ideas, supplement income with spin-off opportunities, and utilize audio, video, and other e-media to further your platform and audience reach.
