Whether you are a grant writer, a novelist, or a student considering a career in journalism, I encourage you to invest in your development as a communications professional. You will learn so much from attending conferences, networking with other writers, and reading. I hope the resources provided here will help you advance on your journey. You will find information on the books, conferences, and groups that have helped me grow as a writer, as well as how-to articles that I’ve written on topics that may be of interest to you.
