Speaking Topics

  • Building an Online Platform with Impact

If you are blogging and never receive comments, your following base doesn't grow, and ranking numbers in the search engines are stagnant, then this is the workshop for you. The content covers why you need an online platform, how to maximize your blogging efforts, increase traffic, comments and online interaction. Social network sites are included such as how to best utilize Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Goodreads, Shelfari, Amazon, etc. And answers the question of why you still need a website if you have a blog and/or the benefit of consolidating.

  • The Art of Researching Today & Yesterday
Jennifer gives tips on how to explore the Internet and to access resources you may have never considered. She shares ideas that will benefit both the contemporary and historical author. You will leave with fresh ideas and a renewed energy for researching that story that's been nagging at your muse.

  • Climbing a Dream
Jennifer shares a re-occuring dream that God gave her through her childhood and how she has seen this dream unfold as she began climbing the ladder of her dream of publication and serving Christ in other areas of her life. Using scripture and experience, Jennifer will inspire you to never give up on your dream regardless of life's obstacles. Learn to believe again in the dreams God has given you.


"Jennifer Hudson-Taylor engages her audience in a way only people gifted in speaking can. Whether you're working on a historical novel or something modern-day her workshop, The Art Of Research For Today and Yesterday, is a wealth of valuable information."          
Lindi Peterson, President, ACFW Word, local chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers in Atlanta, GA.  

"Jennifer Hudson Taylor will amaze and bless anyone who sits under her teaching on writing and research. Of all the speakers we have had, she has been one of the best prepared and most interesting. Attendees took home a ton of useful information. I still refer back to my own notes on her class and to a great handout she gave on methods and sites for researching. In addition, although Jennifer has a busy schedule, she is never to busy to give another writer assistance or encouragement."

Elva Cobb Martin, President, Upstate SC American Christian Writers and former Director, Carolina Christian Writers' Workshop.
