Framing the Dream
This workshop is about making your publishing dreams come true. We discuss the numerous options available to authors wanting to get their work into print, from the traditional route to self-publishing via the internet. There are so many opportunities out there, but every option has pros and cons. How do you know which option is the best one for you?
You start the quest with the dream, your own unique dream of being published. Are you the person who needs to get an agent and be published by Random House to feel successful? Or are you the more do-it-yourself type of person? Will you be satisfied with just a Kindle version of your book, or do you need an actual paper copy in your hand to feel like your book is real? You can’t make a dream come true until you figure out exactly what your dream includes.
From there, you discover what steps you’ll need to take to make that dream a reality. In so doing, you may discover some challenges you hadn’t anticipated, like financial investment or lack of free time to “schmooze” with agents. You may discover what you dreamed isn’t actually what you want. Or you may discover that you do indeed have all the mental and creative resources you need to go after the dream you once thought impossible.
With plenty of time for discussion and individualized instruction, Framing the Dream will help writers create a step-by-step plan to help them achieve their publishing dreams.
