SCBWI Oregon’s professional series is here to help bring your writing and illustration skills to The Next Level. Whether you’re plotting a novel or perfecting a picture book, our TNL sessions can give you tools to advance your career. All levels of experience welcome.

We meet on the third Saturday of each month at Alongsiders Church (in the Fireside Room down the ramp) located at 2830 NE Flanders in Portland. (On street parking or in the lot across the street). Doors open at 2:15 pm, and speakers start at 2:30 pm. At 3:30 we’ll have a time for Q&A and/or book sales. The series runs from September 2019 through April 2020—except for December—but each session is different!

January Speaker: Oanh Jordan, Personal Brand Coach

January Topic: How to Use Personal Branding to Sell Your Books and Beyond

You’ve worked too hard and too long for your passion to remain a hobby and not generate substantial income. But how do you do this? Where do you even begin?
Well, in this presentation you’ll learn how formulating your personal brand can make you stand out in a very competitive industry. Your personal brand defines who you are, what you are about, and helps your readers to connect with you and turn them into loyal, raving fans ready to buy your books and more. We’ll leave behind book trailers or giveaways and tackle this alternative marketing strategy so you can build a solid business from your passion.
