Speakers

For book clubs, community groups, and teachers at all grade levels, JRW is in the process of building a directory of members who are willing to discuss their own books, as well as the craft and business of writing. If you are a member interested in providing this service, please see the form to Join Our Pro List.

If you are interested in speaking at a JRW event, you do not have to be a member, and you should fill out the form to Apply to Teach or Speak.
