Have you ever thought about writing a book? For many individuals in tech, writing a book is an exciting career milestone—but the process can seem too daunting, too mysterious, or too inaccessible.

It doesn’t have to be that way! Whether you’ve got a clear idea or a tangle of messy maybes, writing a book is within your reach. Start bringing your book idea to life by clarifying your topic, defining and understanding your audience, and crafting an elevator pitch you’ll be eager to share.

In this two-hour workshop, you will:

  • Identify and develop your book’s perspective
  • Embrace your experience and expertise (begone, imposter syndrome!)
  • Determine what will make your book stand out for your readers
  • Draft an elevator pitch to share with potential collaborators
