This one and a half hour workshop teaches aspiring authors what it requires to take an idea and transform it into a finished manuscript. Professional writers and editors Marcy Barbaro and Alex Morin discuss ways of writing a book, how to structure a book, the ins and outs of publishing vs. self-publishing, and other nuggets of info that are helpful for first-time (and even veteran) authors. Attendees also roll-up their sleeves and, by the end of the workshop, walk away with the beginnings of a book outline.
Alex Morin is energy. He’s the co-founder of Working Writers Co., a mentorship for authors, and the founder of Promonoise, an educational company that provides cutting-edge product review videos, business-related blogs, podcasts, and other resources. He’s also the creator of Almost Enlightened, a podcast and coaching company, as well as Cacaoching, his latest venture that combines spiritual teachings with the plant medicine of cacao. He’s got 20+ years of experience in promotional advertising, having led sales and marketing teams as a Partner for one of North America’s largest hard goods suppliers, HPG. Alex has a wife and three kids, enjoys nature, loves music and athletics, and is passionate about learning and teaching.
Marcy Barbaro is a book author, professional writer and editor, a mindset coach/trainer, and co-creator of Working Writers Co., a service to help other writers take their stories and turn them into manuscripts, ready for the publishing world. As a certified adult educator (TATA) and yoga teacher with over 2000 hours of teaching experience, Marcy is a strong advocate of creating change without causing self harm. Although we all have work to do, Marcy directly challenges the "Hustle Hard" mentality, believing that we are more creative and effective when we harmonize work with rest. This takes passion and often a mindset change. Guiding you through this is Marcy's specialty. Her personal philosophy of self care spills into every encounter that you have with her; either online or in person.
