Mar 27: Realistic Expectations $77
Setting realistic goals is important for any venture. But how do you know what’s realistic? We’ll go through a sample timeline to help you determine how long it will take to get your manuscript published once you’ve finished writing it. Many decisions need to be made, from cover design to book size to revisions.

Apr 10: Creative Writers $77
How’s the writing going? Getting stuck? Greg Lilly, owner of Cherokee McGhee Publishing and author of Sunsets and Semicolons, will discuss ways to work through writer’s block. Together, you will learn techniques to help you decide which path to take for your story.
Apr 17: Publishing Options and Pointers $77

Dawn Brotherton, owner of Blue Dragon Publishing, LLC, will walk you through some options and discuss what  to look for when choosing a publisher.
