Economics Event

Beginning South Florida's Black Writer's Guild
11:00 am to 2:00 pm:

This workshop/seminar will be a convergence of novelists, journalists, tv & screen writers, and music writers (including rappers and singers). It will cover multiple ways to get published, freelance opportunities, copyright, getting your work edited, etc. We look forward to the organizations and associations joining in to help support the participant’s stories coming from Black Communities. Most importantly though the writers will discover how they can create business opportunities from those stories and how they tell them. This is also the kick off of our request for contributors to our quarterly newsletter and all ages of contributors are welcome.

One Stop Shop to Starting a Business

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm:

Seminar will introduce participants to the pros of owning their own businesses. Information on how to choose their name, setup a business plan, taxes and tools to help like QB, Excel and where to find work, or find contracts.   Depending on funding we’re looking at 20 to 40 upstarts that day that will receive their EIN#, open a business account, complete their application on Sunbiz.org and be provided legal council, an accountant/bookkeeper and an administration firm to setup their business that day! With help for 3 months.
