Red Ink Conference

Authors and entrepreneurs networking at last year’s conference

Nationwide — The Red Ink Conference: The Premier Conference for Authors & Editors will empower attendees to write, edit and market their next bestseller—at a fraction of the cost. Many of the attendees will be indie authors who are just starting their publishing journey. We’re inviting aspiring bestsellers, as well as those who want to take their writing to the next level by editing for other indie authors, to join us in Southfield, MI at the Hilton Garden Inn on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9am to 5pm.

The conference will cap at 100 attendees! Collectively, their conference speakers, Tenita “Bestseller” Johnson, Valerie J. Lewis-Coleman, and LaTanya Orr, have over 20 years of industry experience and run successful businesses that support indie authors nationwide.

LaTanya Orr is a multi award-winning brand strategist and transformational business coach. She’s known for creating and strategizing brand concepts as the CEO of Selah Branding and Design LLC. Valerie J. Lewis Coleman serves experts and professional speakers to magnify and monetize their message by publishing quality bestselling books. As a best-selling author and award-winning publisher, she has helped thousands of aspiring authors navigate the mysterious labyrinth of self-publishing. Finally, CEO and founder of The Red Ink Conference, Tenita Johnson is on a mission to end the prominent everyday abuse of the English language and rectify punctuation pet peeves. As the founder and CEO of So It Is Written, LLC, Tenita collaborates with industry professionals to take manuscripts to the marketplace, positioning authors for success in the literary world.

In addition to pouring into authors from around the nation, a portion of the proceeds from The Red Ink Conference will benefit Brown Girls Read, a book club and mentoring program that aims to increase adolescent literacy and empower youth in the community throughout Metropolitan Detroit and surrounding areas. Brown Girls Read provides workshops that are both fun and educational where youth learn essay writing, tips for applying to college, best practices for obtaining financial aid, money management and more.
