These three published authors assist other writers to market and sell their work through two annual events on Florida’s Space Coast. In the spring, they host the Writers’ Conference: Write, Publish, Sell! In the fall, they host the Meet the Authors Book Fair. They also offer mini-critiques, up to ten pages, of a work-in-progress and arrange book displays.


Authors for Authors assist writers to sell and market their work. We provide venues for authors to showcase their work, make presentations and network with others in the publishing field.
