Here’s what some of our team members are most excited about:

Cayce LaCorte, Publishing Assistant is looking forward to “The Antagonistic Beats of a Story” by Judy L. Mohr. This workshop is perfect for those who love craft workshops. Cayce shares, “I’m a big fan of craft workshops and this seems like a really interesting one because we cover so much in the writing craft about your protagonist’s journey, story arc, etc. that we have fully covered that story when we write. I love that this session is talking about the antagonist’s journey. We all love a hero but give me a good villain any day.”

Lauren Udoh is looking forward to “What first-time authors need to know about editing” by Sandra Wendel. This workshop is perfect for first-time authors who want to know the value of editing. Lauren shares, “I am excited to attend Sandra Wendel’s workshop on editing, because editing is the secret sauce in having your book move from good to great. What do first-time authors need to know about editing? They need to know the value of it and I’m looking forward to hearing what Sandra has to share.”

Raewyn our marketing expert is highly excited about  “8 Secrets of Best-Selling Self-Help Books.” As a self-help bookworm who is passionate about the genre, she is interested in learning the secrets behind the best-selling self-help books and believes it will help her bring her own self-help book ideas to life. 

The Women in Publishing Summit is the perfect opportunity for writers, editors, and marketers to take their skills to the next level. With workshops covering a wide range of topics, everyone is sure to find something that they are passionate about.

Pam, our Community Manager, is looking forward to so many of the exciting workshops at the Women in Publishing Summit. The first one she's eagerly anticipating is Cynthia Fails’ session on “The Impact of Imposter Syndrome”. Pam recognizes the challenge she faces with imposter syndrome and believes this session will provide valuable insights into identifying its impact and ways to retrain her internal dialogues around the subject.

Vanessa, the Women in Publishing Summit Online Coordinator, has selected a few sessions that have caught her attention at the summit. The first one is Joni B. Cole's session on “Good Naked: Exposing the Myths and Popular Practices that Undermine Your Creativity.” Vanessa finds this session intriguing as she feels like she is not a “real writer” and thinks that this session could boost her confidence and motivation.

Another session that Vanessa has picked is Melanie Votaw's talk on “8 Secrets of Best-Selling Self-Help Books.” As someone who reads many self-help books, Vanessa is interested in learning more about the genre and avoiding common mistakes made by beginning authors. This session promises to give insights into the key elements that make a self-help book successful.

Cayce, our Publishing Assistant is looking forward to “How to Avoid the Book Marketing Money Pit” by Belinda K. Griffin. Marketing is a “necessary evil” for authors, and understanding what works and what doesn't is key to successful marketing. “No one marketing plan will work for all books,” says Cayce, “so I'm looking forward to learning about some of the different ad options so I can figure out what will work for me.” Cayce is eager to learn about some of the different advertising options available to authors, so they can avoid falling into the “book marketing money pit.”

The Women in Publishing Summit offers a wealth of knowledge and opportunities for growth. Whether you are a seasoned writer or just starting out, there is something for everyone! With so many fantastic workshops to choose from, it's no wonder the Women in Publishing Summit team members are so excited about this year's event.
