If you are serious about writing and/or publishing, you do not want to miss this event. There are many writing workshops, publishing workshops, and conferences around the globe, but this is the first one conducted by New York Time Bestselling Author, Publisher, Screenwriter and Executive Producer Zane. While most events of this nature typically cost upwards of a hundred dollars and while Zane could arguably charge triple that, this event is only fifty dollars. Zane wants everyone to have a chance to attend.
Learn how to:
Create unforgetabble characters
Outline the perfect storyline
Avoid typical writing mistakes
Discover your writing style
Become disciplined enough to meet deadlines-whether self-imposed or given by a publisher.
Market your book through social media platforms
Increase your readership base
Select the appropriate outlets for your books
Get distribution for your books
Hire the right editor for your projects
Distinguish the difference between being a writer and being an author
Write fiction, nonfiction, television, and film
Approach literary agents
Submit to publishers
Negotiate a book deal that makes sense
Understand today's publishing climate and realistic expectations
...and much more.
This boot camp is not for those individuals who believe that writing is all about making a fast buck. This class is for those who are serious about the craft of writing and passionate about the art. Whether you are an aspiring writer or already published, there will be valuable information for all in attendance. This is not a pitch session for Zane. If you want to submit something to Strebor Books/ATRIA Books/Simon and Schuster, please bring it with you and provide to Nakita West at the event. Since everyone is paying for the experience, it would be unfair for time to be taken away for individual projects. However, there will be plenty of time for a Q & A about general questions, concerns, and topics.
If you wish to bring books for Zane to sign, she will do so at the conclusion of the event, after 4 PM. No videotaping will be allowed during the session, but photography is allowed.
For more information on the event, please contact Nakita West at ZanesRightHandChick@gmail.com.
This event will likely sell out quickly so please reserve your space as soon as possible. This event is a rare opportunity. In fact, it is the first of its kind.
