Author Resources & Events

A discussion in one of the Facebook author groups I’m in prompted this post, but this is by no means a static list! 😊 I’m constantly on the lookout for (mostly) free events and resources, and I’ll add them here as I find them. If you’re also aware of anything cool going on or have a go-to page for some writer wisdom, please feel free to comment and I’ll add it! Thank you so very much, and let’s all help one another rise 💖
