This intensive writing workshop deals with the yin and yang of a writers’ life— the intuitive, interior creative side and the logical, external marketing side. We will cover both the WHY-TO and the HOW-TO of our craft, since it is their fusion that leads to creative combustion and commercial success. Some of the areas we’ll cover: 

  1. How to get the words from your brain to the page.
  2. How to make the proper time and space to support your work.
  3. How to sharpen your focus, voice, proposal, and pitch.
  4. How to excite others about your creative project.
  5. How to create a book proposal that really works.
  6. How to decide whether to self-publish or to find a publisher (the advantages and disadvantages of both).
  7. How to promote and market your book once it's published.
