Nat’l #RedInkConference Expands 2 Days ONLINE: Positions Authors to Publish and Promote in Excellence! 9/11-12 via @tenitajeditor

From sold-out audiences in Detroit three years in a row, to packed rooms in Atlanta, Charlotte
and Chicago, The Red Ink Conference is the nation’s premier conference that is taking the
literary map by storm!

Whether you’re an aspiring author with only a creative idea for a book, or you have 20+ books
published, and you’re ready to take your books to the next level, this is the conference for you!
This one-of-a-kind conference empowers attendees to write, edit and market their next
bestseller—at a fraction of the cost. Due to the current state of the world with COVID-19, it all
takes place online from the comfort of your own home on September 11 and 12, 2020. In
addition to engaging information and quality networking, attendees will experience on-screen
editorial exercises, writing prompts, marketing strategies and more!

Collectively, conference speakers, Tenita “Bestseller” Johnson, Valerie J. Lewis Coleman, Dawn
James, Sulondia “Sue-Ham” Hammond and Tammy Turner have over 50 years of industry
experience and run successful businesses that support indie authors nationwide. Attendees will
learn new, innovative information that will position them to build a solid platform as an
authorpreneur and speaker. Complete with information on marketing, crafting a solid
professional bio and book synopsis, as well as self-publishing industry secrets that save authors
both time and money in the publishing process, writers will leave inspired to take their book
from the page to the stage and the marketplace at-large—allowing them to develop a six-figure
income, even if they just have one book!

General admission tickets are only $129.

To purchase tickets, visit The Red Ink Conference or Eventbrite. For interviews or more
information, please contact Tenita Johnson at redinkconference@gmail.com, or 313.999.6942.

known by many as a human spell check, noun nerd and grammar police, she proudly wears the
badge of honor to correct and serve. Dubbed the editor’s editor, Tenita hosts the annual Red Ink
Conference to empower aspiring authors to write from the editor’s point of view to save time and
money in the self-publishing process. She positions writers as experts in the industry serving

These Detroit spaces and organizations are helping to foster the city’s literary arts community via @modeld #motownwriters

Pages Bookshop

Clarification: The headline has been updated to reflect that this is not an exhaustive list of all of the literary arts spaces and organizations within the city.

Nothing says creative writing like the month of November. Since 1999, artists across the nation have spent the month’s 30 days putting pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) in the name of literary arts. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, inspires writers to exercise their craft, write in community, and for many, author a story from beginning to end. In honor of the month’s creative excitement, we’re taking a look at some of the spaces and programs around the city that foster literary growth year-round.
