Would you like to find ways of making extra money? Enjoy your time at a keyboard, writing? If so, Loriann Oberlin will discuss how you can join the gig economy and put more deposits into your bank account. Oberlin has just published Writing to Make Money: Short Projects, the first in a series of books aimed at helping writers or small business people boost their careers, income, and self-esteem by getting published and better known.
Whether it’s humor and jokes, fillers or recipes, short informative articles, greeting cards, even resumes and correspondence, making money at what you love to do is very possible. This isn’t a get rich equation; it’s a get money flowing faster approach so that you feel good about your efforts and grow as a writer. As a mental health therapist, Oberlin is dually equipped to encourage writers to establish productive habits that will put money into rather than escape from your financial coffers. She will also tell you how to cheerlead yourself and persevere.
Join us on Tuesday, September 25 at 7 PM to Boost Your Bank Account by Writing, in the community room at Kent Island Library, Stevensville.
