Laurie Gibson returns to SDWI to repeat her popular workshop on book publishing!

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.

Editor/proofreader Laurie Gibson has served well over 100 first-time authors. Her work for publishers includes the classic novels Mrs. Dalloway (1998 edition) and The Color Purple (2003 edition), as well as the writing of best-selling business guru Brian Tracy and President Herbert Hoover. Laurie also taught for the UCSD and UCLA Extension programs.
