Craft alone is not enough!

"We’ve become lopsided living only in our heads. Writing, in order to serve the soul, must integrate outer craft with the inner world of intuition and feeling.”  -Catherine Ann Jones 

Join us on December 14th for this 3-hour, one-of-a-kind writing workshop that will help you integrate solid crafting skills with intangible inner dimensions.

Seats are limited!

Promote yourself!
Deliver your message!
 Speak to the crowd!

Prefer to keep it on the down low?

While some writers have no trouble stepping on to a stage and commanding an audience, you might tend to shy away from the self-promotion spotlight.  

Not so! you say. Truth? Ever had this conversation: “How’s your writing coming along?” “Don’t ask"...and there it is; FAILED in Self-Promotion 101.

Public speaking is not only standing up in front of an audience.  It includes the confidence to speak to a group of one about…you! It may also include writing out your accomplishments on a social media networking page like Facebook or LinkedIn. 

The best way to promote yourself and your writing is to be confident and prepared.

Of course, best to figure out your weaknesses. If the friendly game of Charades brings on a full blown panic attack, that's a red flag you may have trouble with self-promotion. 

What's an introspective writer to do?

As a member of the Palm Springs Writers Guild, you have quite a  few resources to utilize this season.  To kick-it-up a notch, take the opportunity and ask a presenter or a fellow member for some sage advice.

Guaranteed you’ll find a wealth of knowledge to help turn your writing dreams into reality!   

*Our next General Meeting is November 1st , 2:00pm - 4:00pm in the Rancho Mirage Library Community Room, Rancho Mirage, CA.

See you there!
