Workshops

Writing & Publishing a Book doesn’t just happen. There are things you need to know before you start writing and there are things you must know about publishers before you knock on their door.

I am available to speak to your group on any of the following topics:

Book Writing Bootcamp

Take this workshop to learn the basics on how to write your book. We will discuss book topics, genre, fiction, non-fiction, how to write a chapter outline, creating characters, story structure, and more! (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

Just Writing

This workshop is for those who are in the actual writing stage. Learn to iron out your transitions, flow, syntax, grammar and punctuation and grip the reader from the first sentence. Bring a chapter or two of your writing. (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

Writing Your Memoir

Do people tell you, “You’ve got to write a book about your life!”?  Maybe you should, maybe you shouldn’t.  If you just want to write it and self-publish, I’ll show you how.  If you think your memoir will be a best seller, let’s talk about the fantastically fickle world of publishing!  (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

How to Approach a Publisher or Agent

Publishers and Agents are not waiting for your call. Take this workshop to learn the lingo, the rules and the tips to getting the attention of a publisher or agent. (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

Self-Publish Your Book for FREE!

It’s true, you can publish your book absolutely free — if you are willing to learn.  This workshop is for those who are savvy with Word 2003, using online functions such as uploading documents, PDF formatted documents and graphic creation software. (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

Edit Thyself!

No first draft of a book gets published, so count on multiple edits and proofreading of your book before you begin to publish. Learn to self-edit with a critical eye in this focused workshop. (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)

How To Write a Book Proposal

This workshop is not for the dreamer. Take this workshop only if you are serious about approaching a publisher or agent. Book proposals are similar to business plans in that they contain documents that reveal the viability of the project, marketing plans, competition, etc. You cannot approach a publisher/agent without one–it is the only way “in.” (Available as a 2-Hour and an All Day workshop)
