Have you dreamed of becoming a published author for years but have only now been able to dedicate time to that passion project? Do you have some niggling internal thoughts (hello, negative self-talk!), that you may be too old to publish? Well, check that imposter syndrome and come join us for a lively and interactive roundtable discussion about how it’s never too late to fulfill your publishing dreams, at any age. Prepare to be inspired as three fabulous panelists share their journeys to publishing, and insights on what it’s like to have an encore career as a fiction author. Learn why the empowering mantra of these authors is “We are Not Done!”
