WORKSHOP OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:

HOW TO GET STARTED WRITING YOUR BOOK!


Almost everyone has at least one book inside of them yearning to be written, but we put it off because it seems to be such a daunting task! It doesn't have to be. In this workshop, we will explain how to get started without feeling like you're about to climb Mt. Everest. Learn how to find the time and how to get what's in your head onto paper.
