SORMAG's Teleseminar - January

SORMAG understand that money is tight right now and you might not be able to make the conferences you plan on attending this year. We would like to offer you an alternative to traveling and spending a lot of money.

We created a series called Bringing the Conference to You. Each month we will offer tele seminars featuring different topics. We have something for the writers and something for the readers.

If you don't see anything that snags your interest, send us an email - - with the topic you're looking for and we'll see what we can do.
