From Idea to Amazon: A Writing & DIY Authorship Workshop
This workshop is for business owners that want to learn Do-It-Yourself self-publishing without spending a lot of money (or any money!)

Register for one, two, or all three events here (no walk-ins):

>>> In theory, you should be able to write a book in just a few months, but distractions and a sometimes steep learning curve can create obstacles.

Workshop leader Yafa Crane Luria is a 30-year veteran English and writing teacher, and an award-winning author of four self-published books. She is an ADHD Family Coach and an expert at helping with challenges around productivity and procrastination (among other things!)

*In this workshop, you'll be able to choose what you want to focus on:

Do you need?

- guidance on where to begin
- a sounding board to help you narrow your topic or define your audience
- tips on good writing
- suggestions to make your writing more accessible to your audience
- feedback on the content you've already written
- help with organizing your thoughts or creating an outline
direction on what your next steps should be
- a session on navigating CreateSpace (Amazons self-publishing platform for Kindle and physical books)

You've got it! All of it, or any of it! We will be heads down, moving you and your ideas forward. The more sessions you attend, the further you progress towards your dream of book authorship!
