Filmmakers, Screenwriters, Publishers and more at Across the Arts July 20

Debbie Knox, WISH TV 8 anchor at Indy 500
Being invited to speak, either on a panel or solo, is always an honor for me. I enjoy teaching others what I have learned over the years of working on and with newspapers, magazines, radio, online and television.

Being invited to speak at Across the Arts is particularly exciting as it is for more than just writers. It encompasses Award-winning filmmakers, publishers, screen writers, social media experts (including me) and more giving their time and expertise to the up and coming artists. The all day event will be held at The Palladium, and is followed by a wine and cheese party. I hope you will join us as this is going to be a 'learn more than you thought possible' opportunity.

My topic will be the practical application of social media for creative  occupations. I would love to meet everyone and answer any questions you may have. And, because we are a creative lot, the organizers have made it a FUN and interactive conference so you will not be bored. I like that...

WriteStuff Writers and The Center for Performing Arts in Carmel will team up for Across the Arts, Sat., July 20.

The one-of-a-kind event transforms the Palladium into a “Writer’s Studio” for a day of literary fun with up-close-and-personal conversations with some of Indiana’s finest writers across the writing spectrum.
