The Women in Publishing Summit is back and better than ever! This year’s lineup of workshops is packed with insightful and valuable sessions that cater to writers, editors, marketers, and small business owners alike. From passive income and lead generation to writing about personal trauma, this summit has something for everyone. Here are some of the workshops our team is most excited about.
Pam, our community manager, is looking forward to Jen Ruiz’s session, Generate Passive Income And Leads For Your Business On Autopilot With Your Book. As someone who runs their own small business, Pam has often considered writing a book related to it. This session appears to be the ideal one for someone looking to incorporate a book into their existing business. She is also intrigued by Holly DiBella McCarthy's session Branding Supplements And How To Create A Value Added Book Resource Guide For Teachers And Parents. With 7 years of experience as a teacher, Pam is curious about the process of creating a resource guide to accompany a book. She has always valued the use of books in the classroom and continues to use them at home with her children.
Vanessa, the Women in Publishing Summit Online Coordinator, is also looking forward to Jenna Avery's session on Daily Writing Made Easy. In this session, participants will learn how to design a writing practice that fits their life, how to get back on track when they fall off course, and tips and tricks to keep writing and bring their books and screenplays to completion. Vanessa is interested in this session as she believes consistency and habits are key to achieving one's goals. She is especially looking forward to learning about methods to get back on track and tips to quiet the inner gremlins that can often hold writers back.
Mandi, a social media manager, is eager to attend Krista Hanley's workshop “Ready To Tell: Writing About Your Past Trauma.” As a survivor of trauma, she recognizes the challenges of writing personal experiences but hopes to learn the elements and practices of trauma-informed writing. With guidance and prompts from a published writer, she hopes to overcome the silence and uncertainty surrounding her trauma and write about it in an empowered and transformative manner. This workshop offers a unique opportunity for her to explore the power of writing in a safe environment and connect with others who share her passion and experiences.
Cayce LaCorte, Publishing Assistant, is eagerly anticipating the upcoming session “Plotting for Pantsers” by Jacci Turner. As Cayce describes, “I am somewhere in between a plotter and a pantser; a Plantser if you will.” During this session, participants will learn about the three crucial components of plot development: Goals, Motivation, and Conflict. These elements help to answer the What, Why, and Why Not of a story, and to ensure that the plot is driven by strong motivation and meaningful conflict.
The Women in Publishing Summit is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to improve their writing skills, learn about marketing and business strategies, and connect with like-minded individuals. Whether you’re a seasoned writer or just starting out, this summit is sure to bring you valuable insights and knowledge to further your writing journey.
