On February 9th, pet writers of all levels will gather at The Business of Pet Writing Conference in the Hotel Pennsylvania's Penn Top Ballroom, and rub elbows with the premiere people in the publishing, social media, veterinary and animal-related industries.

Pet media need to hone their skills more than ever before. The economic downturn, coupled with stiff competition, incentivizes pet writers to get an edge. That edge is found in attending The Business of Pet Writing Conference where pet writers have the chance to learn from the best in the business and to make valuable contacts.

In February 2013, The Business of Pet Writing Conference will offer seminars and workshops that help pet writers learn; to avoid pitfalls when working with book, magazine and web editors; to develop a platform; to write product reviews; to develop better speaking and presentation skills; to create Hyper News; to measure their social media influence; and to market with social advertising.

In addition to the core educational program, The Business of Pet Writing Conference participants have the opportunity to meet with top agents and editors on an individualized basis. While some past attendees have utilized these sessions to pitch their ideas and secure magazine and web writing assignments as well as book deals.

The Business of Pet Writing Conference also welcomes a variety of notable veterinarians and others who are eager to assist pet writers with their research, book and article ideas. Take advantage of these organization’s materials (studies, reports, press releases, newsletters, etc.).

Lastly, network with other writers, bloggers, podcasters and reporters who are looking for an edge just like you!

Get your edge. Register for our fifth annual Business of Pet Writing Conference in February 2013.

Please be advised that we are continuing to add to our unique program, check regularly for updates.
