Meet the

Alexa Bigwarfe

Women in Publishing Summit Host, Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, Publisher, Champion of Women

Alexa Bigwarfe is an author, speaker, and publisher. Her writing career began as a therapeutic journey after her infant daughter passed away at 2 days old. Her debut book, Sunshine After the Storm: A Survival Guide for the Grieving Mother, launched an unexpected career in publishing and author coaching. Her most recent book, Ditch the Fear and Just Write It! is a guide to help female entrepreneurs who know they want to write a book but need the push to get started. The Women in Publishing Summit is her third online summit for writers, but the first focused solely on women.

What others have to say…

Thank you for this phenomenal opportunity. You have put together a Magnificent program and one of the Best Leadership and Success oriented informational trainings I have ever attended. I did purchase the package so that I can go back and re-listen to these presentations as I travel on this path of Writing and Authorship. Your courses are a big help to not have to “re-invent the wheel” so to speak. I am 71 years young and Time is a commodity I cannot waste. My writings will be my legacy to my Family. Again I thank you for your Professionalism of reaching out to help Women be All they Can Be.

Just signed up for this summit and I'm very excited! I've taken Alexa Bigwarfe's Publishing and Marketing conference and it was truly AMAZING. I learned so much…made terrific connections…worth every penny. I'm sure this will be, too!

Thank you. Thank you for interviewing all these women, compiling all these resources and best of all, giving it away simply for the sake of helping other women — in your own words — ditch the fear and just write. I'm not sure how many other 18 yr old girls are watching the videos in this summit, but I have to say they have provided the most detailed and helpful advice I have seen so far. (Though to be honest, I doubt I'll be able to make the most of it until I'm older. Perks of not being 21 in Malaysia, you see). I'll be sure to attend next year's WIP summit and (hopefully) the dozen more summits after that. Again, thank you and have a good day.
