"My Path" workshop info:
This is an individual workshop, registration to be determined between myself and you, as I will be working one on one with each participant. The "My Path" workshop is strictly for those writers wishing to pursue a career in writing and who would benefit from one-on-one teaching. This five-week course will focus how to get your writing accepted for the publication fitting to your genre. Your ideas and goals will be taken into consideration for each week's choice and we will work together to tailor-make and create a presentation and/or story that is your very best. You will learn from an insider's perspective how to reach your very specific goals of paid publications and at the end of the workshop series, you will receive a contact list of publications created especially for you and your personal writing goals. I will work with you to map out an organized list of how, who and where to get your work published. This is a one-on-one five-week workshop of my time just for you!
You will leave this workshop with more help and guidance than any writer setting out on his or her own! We will focus on your particular goals and work toward accomplishing them together! Email me for more info about the "My Path" workshop. Course fee: $199.00
