ACHF Arts Access
I will engage personally with my audience rather than just having them read my book. I will be able to tell by the number of people who come to the readings/presentations. 2: I view this as an opportunity to develop my business skills, because this goes beyond the writing and editing process and involves organizing presentations through the state. I will be able to evaluate based on how well attended and how well organized the events are since these require an immense amount of planning to pull off successfully.
I was able to expand contacts throughout the state. I had to organize the readings, publicize, and then evaluate the presentation based on audience reaction and attendance. This is a great base then to go back and do further readings in the future. 2: I was able meet many, many people and discuss my work. I would give a reading, slide show, and then open up the floor to questions. At times, I would get questions about the writing process, inspiration, etc. This was a great experience to talk with so many people about my work.
