      Instructor Teresa Funke

      3 class series Tuesdays in October 13, 20 & 27 from 3pm - 5pm MT - Virtual on Zoom

      New Class! It all starts with an idea—a middle-of-the-night brainstorm or a concept that’s been building—and you know you’ve got a book inside you. But how do you begin? And where do you go from there? Good planning means seeing your journey laid out before you. In this six-hour workshop, taught over three nights, successful author and writer’s coach Teresa R. Funke will teach you:

      Class 1:

      How to Get Started:

      Is your idea sound? Can it sustain a book? How to embark on research, get to know your characters or subject matter, learn the craft of writing . . .

      How to Write:

      Where do you start your book or story? Do you need an outline? How to choose a point of view, develop characters or anecdotes, manage your content or structure your plot . . .

      Class 2:

      How to Revise:

      How to know when your book is really done. Do you need a collaborator or proofreader? How to tighten your writing, check pacing, handle rewrites, get feedback . . .

      How to Prepare Your Work for Submission:

      What are your publishing options? Is self-publishing or traditional publishing for you? How to write query and cover letters, track submissions, build a buzz for your book before you submit . . .

      Class 3:

      How to Find an Editor or Agent:

      Do you need an agent? How do you write a book proposal or a synopsis? Should you present your work at a conference, enter a contest, contact editors directly . . .

      How to Manage Your Published Book:

      What happens after the book is published? How do you develop a marketing plan? Should you approach the press, speak on the radio, present at schools . . .

      ** Free to each participant: A copy of Teresa’s 110-page That Book Inside You workbook full of resources and information, sample writing magazines, a copy of Teresa’s book, Bursts of Brilliance for a Creative Life, and a fun writing gift for you.
