She will provide hints and tips on breaking into this market with your product, plus a few ideas for creating products for homeschoolers. Fiction writers encouraged to attend.
Everything I Need to Know Is on the Internet?
The wealth of information on the Internet is amazing. It’s not called The Information Super Hiway without good reason. Research, though, is more than a Google search. It still requires getting out of the chair, and away from the computer.
Susan K. Stewart will take you back to the basics of research. She will show you not just how to do Internet research, but also how to combine it with original document sources, interviews, and roaming the stacks at the library. Be prepared for some quick assignments to learn the skills.
