As an author, how you deliver your writing to a wider audience is every bit as important as how you write it. WFNS and Toastmasters invites you participate in a new program: a Toastmasters Club for writers!

The Toastmasters program provides a safe environment for writers to hone their skills and prepare for upcoming events: readings, media interviews, panel discussions or author pitch sessions (whether they are next month or next year).
