Writing Through the Tough Times

Sunday, May 22nd @ 3PM EDT/Noon PDT/9PM Paris/5AM +1 AET

For some, the pandemic was the perfect time to finally write that book they always knew they had inside them. For others, it killed off their creativity and disrupted their workflow. But you don’t need a pandemic to do that—smaller, more personal disasters can derail even the most dedicated.

So how do you stay focused when your world’s gone mad? How do you put aside difficult emotions, from sadness to anxiety to grief, to produce words? Join seasoned authors Laura Bradbury and Sharon Wray as they share their experiences and tactics on how to not only keep coming to the page but actually want to write.

Blurbing Your Way to Book Sales with Lisa Anselmo

Your book’s description, or “blurb,” might be more important than the cover for hooking a reader. It’s the first thing they read, after the cover to know if it’s worth their time.

So, how do you distill your story down to a few potent paragraphs that will make your story irresistible? In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the key elements every engaging blurb has, and how to shape your own blurb copy into that succinct super-hook that makes readers hit “buy now.”
