This focus class is a large-group get-together led by a group of experts who will sit with you and answer whatever questions you might have about a topic close to the heart of your career. 

Discuss the nuts-and-bolts, step-by-step process for creating a following and fan base for your work. Leaders will talk about the general process of developing a vibrant pack of loyal readers, and how you can apply the details to your specific situation.
