Who This Project is For
The Speaker Bureau is an independent community resource for speakers and event organizers interested in writing, publishing, and book discussions more generally. There is no charge for the service, although speakers and organizers are free to arrange for a speaking fee if they wish to do so.
This project was conceived by book industry news blogger, author consultant, and web designer Nate Hoffelder shortly after he was elected president of Riverside Writers Club in Fredericksburg, VA. He created it so that author group organizers like him could find experts they can invite to speak to their author groups via Zoom.
It is open to all experts who want to address groups of authors virtually. The experts are welcome to submit their contact info and a list of topics. This information will be added to a list of speakers, and that list will be shared with organizers who can then choose which speakers they want to contact.
This project currently exists in the form of a spreadsheet, but there are plans to eventually turn that into a database in a site where speakers can list their bios, contact info, summaries of their talks, etc.
How This Works
1, Speakers submit their contact info and a list of topics.
2, Their information will be added to a spreadsheet.
3, Organizers will browse the spreadsheet and then choose which speakers they want to contact.
P.S. Speakers will also get a monthly newsletter containing details on conferences with open submissions.
