  • How To Make Every Day a Writing Day

    How To Make Every Day a Writing Day

    Guest Judy Reeves
    Date Thursday 9th August

    Every writer dreams of “getting away”, of finding a time and place where she can really focus on her writing. A mountain cabin; a cottage by the sea; a secret, hidden retreat where there are no “musts” or “have tos” or “shoulds.” If we could just get away, we think, we could get that novel written, get a serious start on our memoir, finish that short story,  screenplay or book we started months ago. “Away” is where we long to be as we arm-wrestle the elements of our daily lives to make time for our writing.  

    But what if “away” is a state of mind and that secret, hidden retreat is as near as your sofa or kitchen table or the café around the corner? It’s called writing practice and it’s in creating such a practice that the novel or memoir or story will actually get written. Through writing practice, every day becomes a writing day.  

    Writing practice is setting aside a time every day (half an hour, an hour, even 15 minutes), when you put pen to page or fingers to keyboard and write. By taking the time for writing practice, you honor yourself as writer. When you write on a daily basis your self-confidence increases. You explore what interests you; you’re free to make mistakes, to roam the far edges of your imagination, and in the practice, you become a better writer. You become a writer who writes.

    In this interview, you’ll learn:

    • How to create a daily writing practice
    • Tips and techniques for finding time and creating space
    • How to get started (and how to keep going)
    • Why and how to use writing prompts
    • What stuck looks like and how to get unstuck
    • How to avoid the critic, the editor and the censor
    • What the 12 essential guidelines for writers are

    Judy Reeves is a writer, teacher, and writing practice provocateur who has written four books on writing including A Writer's Book of Days and Writing Alone, Writing Together. Her work has appeared in magazines, journals, anthologies and in the spoken word compilation First Friday: Year 3. She's also the editor of the Brown Bag Anthology, and a cofounder of the Writing Center, a nonprofit literary arts organization. In addition to leading writing practice groups, Judy holds private workshops, teaches at University of California San Diego Extension; San Diego Writers, Ink; and writing conferences internationally. She lives in San Diego, CA. Visit her online at www.judyreeveswriter.com.

  • Content Marketing for Conscious Writers

    Content Marketing for Conscious Writers

    Guest Michelle Carvill
    Date Thursday 6th September

    Once upon a time the publishing of content for a wide audience was in the domain of a few publishing houses, broadcasters and media moguls. Today, anyone can publish written, audio or video material, and share it with the world simply via their mobile phones.

    This freedom to publish means there is content overload. So, how do you cut through the noise and ensure that your content is compelling, useful, and encourages people to do what you want with it?

    Whether your objective is to get someone to read your book, subscribe to your blog, share your content with others or purchase something, you need to begin by asking and answering a few questions:  what’s your objective, who are your audience, where are they, and how can you engage with them?

    By the end of this talk you will understand:

    • How to make the most of the content you create and share on social media channels.
    • Why the concept of ‘You are what you share’ – is an important one.
    • How to think objectively about your goals and social media activity, and answer one key question before you begin.
    • The best way to put a strategy in place for creating fresh and purposeful content regularly.
    • The simple and effective model of Plan, Listen, Analyse to help you deliver on your specific objectives.
    • How blogging is a central and flexible vehicle to share your content and strengthen your visibility online.

    Michelle Carvill is Founder of Carvill Creative – a marketing, social media and web agency founded in 2002 – and is co-author of The Business of Being Social – A Practical Guide to Harnessing, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube for Business . Michelle provides strategic marketing advice to clients covering both traditional and online marketing.

    • If you need a literary agent and what the benefits are from working with one
    • How to find and approach an agent professionally and with confidence
    • How the market is evolving and what to focus on to succeed as an author today
