GAAntonyBaroneKolencTony Kolenchttp://www.antonykolenc.com/tony@antonykolenc.comFirst, I can speak on legal topics related to writing, homeschooling, and religion. For instance, I can speak on copyright law for writers; I've given talks on legal mistakes that homeschoolers make; and I've spoken about legal topics related to the pro-life movement and the separation of church and state. Second, I can give inspirational talks, such as the one I gave at the writer's conference: "Piercing the Darkness with the Eyes of Faith." Third, I can give writing-related talks, such as developing fiction plots and characters.
