How to Build Your Writing Career - July 23, 2022
presented by Lisa Diane Kastner
Anyone can write a book. And in today’s world of self-publishing, it’s easier than ever to get that book into print. Building a career, however, takes a solid strategy and an associated plan of action to take your writing from concept through publication and beyond.
This is a workshop-style program. You will leave the session with a detailed plan and list of action items to implement in forwarding your publication goals.
What you’ll need: A notebook, or some other way to take notes, and internet access.
Questions to ask yourself in advance:
What are your writing goals and why?
What are your career goals?
What do you see as your strengths?
How would your best friend answer this question, “You are amazing at ….” (Heck, just go ahead and ask them!)
