The path to publication is filled with detours and distraction, and without proper goal-setting, you may find yourself overwhelmed and frustrated. Goals are like little lampposts that help light the path toward your writing dreams and help keep you focused towards your desired outcome: whether that’s getting a book published, or establishing a fulfilling writing career. In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll discover how to turn your writing dream into a vision by creating purposeful, compelling, and practical goals. Beyond this, you’ll learn strategies and tactics to set, sustain, and succeed in your writing goals.
Registered SCBWI Members will have an additional opportunity to join a writing group or critique group. Following the webinar, participants will be sent a brief survey. Interested individuals can complete the survey to be matched with writers based on common interests and goals. Information and support will be offered to ensure all groups get a strong start.
