01/05 Book Publishing 1-2-3 with Laurie Gibson
Sprinkled with stories and tips (e.g., how to find literary agents), this lively class is designed to empower and inspire writers of all levels and genres. We’ll start with a quick glimpse at today’s dynamic world of book publishing (including a peek at the hot topics of self-publishing and e-books), and then focus on the writer and the craft of writing.
On the menu is a blend of evocative writing prompts, writing tips, self-assessment exercises, and invaluable writing time. We’ll also share ideas about how to creatively coax and stimulate the muse (especially when it’s on strike), and offer practical, proven tips to help writers get published and sell their work.
The final touch? Answers to your questions about writing and publishing.
