Writing a book is straightforward. You sit, you write. Voila! You’re done. Theoretically. Alas, there are steps in-between, and in this free teleclass we’ll cover them. By hour’s end, you’ll have a clear sense of what a book project entails, and if you have the time, energy and interest to dive in.


Specifically, you will:

  • Learn how the writing and publishing process works.
  • Identify the characteristics that distinguish books from other writing forms.
  • Determine the pros and cons, and skills required to undertake so ambitious a project.
  • Pinpoint your personal goals and how your book will benefit others.
How does a teleclass work?
It’s easy! When you register, you’ll be given a phone number and an access code. Simply dial in a minute or two before the class starts and enter the access code when prompted. We’ll be there to greet you. There will be a mix of teaching and conversation.
