Virtual ShopTalk - Writing and Submitting "The Story of My Heart"

Jul 10, 2024

Online event


We often hear writers announce "the story of my heart will be a book!" but what does this really mean and how do you turn the story of your heart into a traditionally published book? In this workshop, I will define the meaning, provide tips on taking that story from personal to publishable, and share my experience from story conception, to rejections, to publication, and what happens when that personal story goes into the world. A recording will be available to registered participants for a month after the event. PLEASE NOTE - You must register before the event in order to have access to the video.
