Let’s face it, speechwriting is a niche service. And like all writing jobs, it can seem a little solitary at times. There simply aren’t many people around doing what we do, and precious few places to seek out career advice and support (no, bars don’t count).
That’s why The New York Speechwriter’s Roundtable is so valuable.
Roundtable members get together four times a year in midtown Manhattan to eat a brown bag lunch, tell war stories, share tips, and hear a guest speaker on the business of communications and what it means to write speeches for a living. It’s a great opportunity to expand your knowledge, develop your skills, and get some job advice in an environment of mutual support and camaraderie.
Dues are a nominal $50 a year. So come and “brown bag it” with members of the tribe. Your fellow speechwriters are waiting to meet you.
