Saturday, July 24, 2021, 9:00 AM PST

Dedicated writers are working today in greater numbers than ever before.  New writers are constantly being published and produced, and financial and critical successes can be found in the most unlikely of place.

However, for many of you trying to find success as a writer, the world may seem to be a complex and perplexing place where bad writing get published and talented newcomers can languish for years. Competition can be fierce, the marketplace confusing and the road ahead seems endlessly frustrating.  Each day, it can seem like the rules are stacked up against you - and there’s no way to win.

Yet, there are paths to success where many have found glory.  So, what is the secret to finding this kind of personal fulfilment?  The answer lies in understanding the Rules of Writing and knowing which ones to break and when is the right time to take action.

What you will learn in this Masters Workshop:
  • The 7 Rules of Writing that exist all around us
  • Understanding your TRUE role in the marketplace
  • Realize why, in many ways, the title WRITER is actually holding you back
  • Discover exactly what constitutes your own personal success
  • Assess where you are in the process – what skills you have actually learned and those vital strategies you have yet to discover
  • Distinguish which skills, beliefs and techniques you MUST have ,
    and just what – and who – is actually standing in your way to success

Who Should Attend :   
  • Beginning Writers who are just setting  out and who want to start off on the right foot
  • Aspirant Writers who want to build on the success they already have by correctly making the next critical move
  • Advanced Writers who want to take their career to the next level

Don't you owe it to yourself to put your best foot forward, to learn the skills of the professionals now and to give yourself the best single chance you'll have to find the success in writing that you have longed for?

This course will only be offered once this year. Come and join us for what promises to be a unique trip to success. I hope to see you there!
