Self-Authoring Workshop #1: Self-Publishing 101


We believe that everyone has a voice and a story to tell. Today, everyone can publish a book!

While influencers are seizing this opportunity to share knowledge and build a personal brand, what can we, the ordinary people, do with the tools available to us?

Sometimes, storytelling and publishing are not all about brand-building. It is a way for us to document our lives, a channel to communicate our values, a trail that guides people on a similar journey.

In this interactive workshop, besides breaking down the process of self-publishing for you, we will focus on the ‘why’ behind a book project and how you derive the ‘north star’ of the book in you.

This is the first workshop of a year-long ‘self-authoring’ series that aims to empower people to own their voice and make a positive impact with it. When you share your stories with courageously, truthfully, generously, it is the most powerful tool that you have.
