“WARRIOR WRITER WORKSHOP”
Focused on the Author
Class Sunday from 9a - 6p (60 Minute Lunch Break)
Warrior Writer—creating a new breed of author for the future of publishing.
The most powerful weapon in the Green Beret arsenal is the mind. In order for a Green Beret to be truly elite, he must not only be highly trained and physically tough, but also be mentally tough and creative. The same is true of authors.
The world of publishing
is changing at an incredible rate.
No longer can an author simply write a book, hand it over to their agent
and editors and go back to working on the next book letting others handle it
from there. For today's authors to
succeed, they have to not only write a great book, but build a platform, a
brand, and promote themselves as well as their books. Formal author training does not exist in traditional
publishing. It is a hit or miss
endeavor, with a focus on what might have worked in the past, not what is needed
in today's current world to be successful.
Warrior Writer uses the strategies and tactics from WHO DARES WINS: THE GREEN BERET WAY TO CONQUER FEAR & SUCCEED (Simon & Schuster 2009-you get a copy as part of the workshop) to create a new brand of authors who not only write better books, but are trained to handle all aspects of the business of publishing. The Warrior Writer understands the industry as well as their craft. Warrior Writers successfully and effectively integrate art with business. Warrior Writers know how to help create and build synergy among all team members (author /agent /editor /publisher /reader) to achieve far more than the individuals ever world. In essence, Warrior Writer is 'The Green Beret A Team'.
The Warrior Writer actively studies the failures and successes of others to craft a winning strategy for today and into the future. The Warrior Writer is in command of their destiny, not at the mercy of it. The Warrior Writer is streamlined, effective, innovative, intelligent, self-motivated, professional, and dedicated to excellence.
Special Forces created a new breed of soldier for the future of warfare. The modern soldier is trained and equipped to accomplish more than ever in human history. The modern soldier is more than a fighter; he is Humanitarian, Guardian, Ambassador, and Peacemaker.
The new breed of author understands and harnesses the power of marketing. The Green Berets were one of the first engaged in psy-ops, understanding there was more to winning a war then bullets and bombs. The new breed of WW author understands human psychology and uses it to create a brand and a platform.
The Warrior Writer actively studies the failures and successes of others to craft a winning strategy for today, every day, and into the future. The Warrior Writer is in command of her destiny, not at the mercy of it. The Warrior Writer is streamlined, effective, innovative, intelligent, self-motivated, professional, and dedicated to excellence. The Warrior Writer, much like the modern soldier, accomplishes more than ever before in the course of human history.
Warrior Writer is an absolute necessity for agents and editors who want to dominate the new era of publishing. Every day, agents and editors face new challenges in the market and in the mutable face of technology. Who do they want on their team? Who do they want to entrust with their safety, security, and future?
The Green Berets are proof these tactics work, and the benefits you'll gain from this workshop will extend far beyond your writing. You will progress through two levels of Who Dares Wins:
