Author Roadmap with J.B. Kish

IMPORTANT: New location and day of the week!

Author Roadmap

This is a hybrid presentation. Doors and Zoom open at 6:15PM and the presentation begins at 6:30PM.

Many writers can clearly articulate their career goals (published author, movie deal, adoring fans!), but when it comes time to explain *how* they’ll achieve these goals, the picture becomes a little less clear. Like any profession, the most successful authors are the ones with a clear vision and a roadmap to back it up. Join author, coach, and project manager J.B. Kish this September 21 at 6:30PM, online and in-person at our new location, Three Creeks Library, for an interactive workshop that will help you cut through the industry noise, clearly identify your goals, and help you articulate the exact steps that will help you achieve them.

This workshop was presented at the Willamette Writers Conference and is back on popular request!
