Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write ~ A Writer's Workshop ~ Manifest Your Dreams

  • Jun 17, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • Private Residence

An offshoot of Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write literary salon, Women Who Write~ A Writer's Workshop, is a safe haven to ready your work for publication, performance and promotion, while giving that work and everything you do an effective call to action. There's no greater marker of our words effectiveness and impact than reading them aloud to an audience to gauge response to structure, style and intent... including our promotion, and queries. David Sedaris never goes to print without reading his work to an audience first. What better audience than our supportive, nurturing community? Don't let my snark scare you. I'll be nice. Will too! More importantly, I'll be helpful. Bring it!

This workshop will be combining Women Who Write Read Aloud with InterNetworking, developing the work and the skills to effectively promote and market everything you're doing. We'll be covering next steps for whatever you're working on and wherever you're at... reading aloud to get feedback on the writing and/or to get podium ready... guidance with a project... promo and outreach... defining brand and direction. The combined goddess wisdom and energy is fierce, insightful and downright inspiring. I dig that shit!

Women Who Write was originally created as a platform for me to workshop my book. It's been an invaluable tool, which has fine-tuned my manuscript and enabled a more powerful, consistent voice to emerge. Whether you use this workshop to prepare for publication, performance, or both, Women Who Write will empower you to bring forth your best. For those whose work is already out there, we'll be exploring next steps.
