- So what exactly is schmoozing?
- Who can do it?
- What's the purpose?
Well according to Merriam Webster here's what "schmooze" means:
To converse informally : chat; also : to chat in a friendly and persuasive manner especially so as to gain favor, business, or connections
And what could be better than getting together with like-minded folk and chatting about the thing we are most interested in: writing.
Well, if you're like me, and love talking with other writers then listen up:
