About Candace Long
Candace Long has been in the Arts & Entertainment sector for 40 years. In that time, she has worked as a performer, writer, composer theatrical producer, business & marketing consultant, arts leader and marketplace minister. As such, she has a wealth of wisdom and information for anyone pursuing a career in the arts. She has seen the good, the bad and the ugly and tells it like it is. In short, Long knows what it means to "survive the creative journey."

In 2000, she ventured out to re-stage her award-winning musical A Time To Dance and take it on the road. Unfortunately, her premiere fell on the ill-fated September 11, 2011. The events surrounding 9-11 forced the production company to close and left her financially devastated. She entered a self-imposed three-year "wilderness," asking soul searching questions on how to survive the creative journey. Long emerged with her signature book, Wired for Creativity and founded Creativity Training Institute to help others understand how to navigate their creative journey.

Long has served as Vice Chair of Women In Film & Television International (WIFTI) and President of Women In Film & Television Atlanta (WIFTA). She currently serves as Vice President of Development for the National League of American Pen Women, is a member of the Georgia Film & Music Commission and acts as a consultant for the Georgia Arts Network.
