Tired of Not Living an Authentic Life?

Not Sure How To Support Yourself Doing What You Really Love?


Taught by Laura Zam, an award-winning writer, performer, and educator, HOW TO MAKE A LIVING IN THE ARTS offers artists (writer's, musicians, actors, etc.) concrete steps for turning passion into profession. Or turning profession into more lucrative profession.  Unlike other artist-in-business workshops that focus primarily on marketing, this workshop offers comprehensive strategies that zero in on the particular struggles that artists face. Creative people at all stages of their careers are welcome. 

Topics we'll cover in the teleclass:

  • Construct a passionate vision for your life as a creative person;
  • Step into your role as artist entrepreneur;
  • Find a market for your work based on your unique contributions;
  • Manage and self-doubt and "naysayers";
  • Identify meaningful income streams;
  • Model your career on the lives of already successful artists;
  • Make the transition from your current life to your ideal artist's life.

The call will last approximately 90 minutes, including time for questions and answers.


Learn how to move ahead, directly toward your dreams!
