Congratulations, Alison. Alison has chosen the Character workshop in May as her free workshop. We look forward to seeing her there.
April is shaping up to be a big month. On our competition survey form, many people expressed interest in the Publishing and Marketing Workshops. These are filling fast so don't miss out. The details are below.
Our first workshop was great fun and all who attended said they are coming back for more.
Our next workshop is Waking Your Imagination on March 18th.
Bookings are flowing in so that should be a fun and informative event.
How do we stimulate our imaginations and why do we have to?
We are all born with an imagination. You only have to watch small children at play to see that. So what happens to that imagination? In my opinion and experience, parents, teachers, and others stifled it.
People who didn't have their imagination squashed create all inventions and write amazing stories. To do this they have to use their imagination and believe that anything is possible.
So back to the question of how we can stimulate our imaginations. During the Waking your imagination workshop on March 18th we will do some exercises on using our imagination and I will show you how I develop my stories. By the time you leave, you will have stimulated the imagination you were born with and will be able to apply it to your story idea.
I hope to see you there.
April 8th and 9th. Publishing and Marketing:
Saturday 8th: Publishing: With Elaine Ouston.
What are the options? The options for publishing now are many. Self-publishing, Partner Publishing, Traditional Publishing, eBook only, POD, etc. We examine all your publishing options and look at the cost, benefit and draw-back of each. In case you decide to go the traditional route, we help you create a killer synopsis, perfect pitch and submission letter.
Sunday 9th: Marketing: With Aleesah Darlison from Greenleaf Press.
How do you get your book into bookstores? How do you create market awareness? And how do you get people buying your book? The publishing industry is highly competitive and is constantly evolving. If you want to stand out, if you want people to buy your books, they first have to know who you are.
