Day One

Set Up Systems for Success

What's keeping you from your best writing? Habits? Limiting beliefs? Distractions? We'll craft a system for success that you can use every time you sit down to write.


Blueprint Your Book

It all starts with key questions that lay the foundation for compelling characters and page-turning plots and their nonfiction equivalents.

"The breakout sessions were amazing! It wasn't like most conferences where you learn something but don't try it while you are in the moment. Everyone was so supportive and engaged. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! This was an incredible conference! I really appreciate all that you do for all of us."

--Xan Barnard, writer

Day Two

Keep Them Reading

Write page-turning scenes that keep your readers up all night for "just one more page." What are the key elements that each scene needs?


Self-editing

How do you step back and look at your work objectively? What are the micro and macro levels you need to examine to refine your writing?

"It was fantastic, Jennifer...The breakout groups, back cover story, synopsis, [learning more about] instagram."

MEDIA spelled out with typewriter keys.

Day Three

Hook Your Readers from the Start

Writing the dreaded copy that sells your book to editors, agents, and readers.


Get Out There and Find Your Readers

How to use social media to raise your profile and find readers.

Who's your ideal reader and why do you care? How to attract readers who will become superfans and beg for your next book.
