Author and psychologist Judith C. Tingley will lead next Field’s End Writer’s Roundtable.

The topic is “The Art of Self-promotion: How to be an effective public speaker of your own writing.” The roundtable is 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the Bainbridge Public Library and is designed to teach writers the basics of readings – how authors can be engaging, accessible and subtly self-promoting speakers in the spotlight at the local bookstore.

Tingley is an island resident and author of four nonfiction books. She is a freelance writer, blogger and community volunteer and has worked as a professional speaker and corporate trainer. Tingley also has written about the writer as speaker for the American Society of Journalists and Authors Magazine, and speaks on the topic of eliminating the fear of public speaking.

The evening includes a question-and-answer session and closes with an opportunity to network with other writers.

Field’s End monthly Roundtables are free and open to writers of all levels and interests. No registration is required.
