An instructional all-day workshop by Noted Author and Writer's Coach Teresa R. Funke. This material is now also available through a six-week group coaching teleseminar for participants across the nation. For more information, click here.
It all starts with an idea—a middle-of-the-night brainstorm or a concept that's been building—and you know you've got a book inside you. But how do you begin? And where do you go from there? In this six-hour workshop, successful author and writer's coach Teresa R. Funke will teach you:
How to Get Started: Is your idea sound? Can it sustain a book? How to embark on research; get to know your characters or subject matter; learn the craft of writing . . .
How to Write: Where do you start your book or story? Do you need an outline? How to choose a point of view; develop characters and/or anecdotes; manage your content or structure your plot . . .
How to Revise: How to know when your book is really done. Do you need a collaborator or proofreader? How to tighten your writing; check pacing; handle rewrites; get feedback . . .
How to Prepare Your Work for Submission: What are your publishing options? Is self-publishing the route for you? How do you write query and cover letters; track submissions; build a buzz for your book before you submit . . .
How to Find an Editor or Agent: Do you need an agent? How do you write a book proposal or a synopsis? Should you present your work at a conference; enter a contest; contact editors directly . . .
How to Manage Your Published Book: What happens after you get that publishing contract or produce your own book? How much marketing do you have to do? How do you develop a marketing plan; approach the press; speak on the radio; present at schools . . .
