Possible topics: I've spoken on a variety of topics, from history to religion to hiking, but specifically for writers, I have given talks on the personal creative writing process, how to write a query letter, and how to find an agent, and publicity/marketing. I'd love to do a talk on independent/small presses as I have written over a dozen articles on the topic.
