If my experience with last year’s American Society of Journalists and Authors (“ASJA”) conference is any indication, this year’s event should be productive indeed. According to the 2017 ASJA Annual Conference website page, a central theme will be change and disruption of a writing industry once deemed staid. Entitled “Pivot Publish Prosper,” this 46th gathering will tackle the creative side of writing as well as the business aspect of commercializing words. It should be a busy two days.
