Author and Publisher Team to Offer Free Teleseminar on Bringing A Writers' Dream to Life
advocate Carolyn Howard-Johnson and publisher Patrika Vaughn are
teaming up to present a free teleseminar to writers who want to tell
their own stories, as memoir or as fiction. Thus it is for
genealogists, journalists and story tellers everywhere.
teleseminar titled "How To Write Your Life Story" will be moderated by
award-winning speaker and author, Allyn Evans who is also the author of
Grab the Queen Power: Live Your Best Life, based on her own
Howard-Johnson will share her experience of
turning her family's genealogy and stories in her award-winning novel
This Is the Place and using the leftover stories from that effort in a
book of creative nonfiction short stories, Harkening: A Collection of
Stories Remembered. Her experiences will inform those inclined to
publish their stories but who need more information about how that
might come to be. She even used family memories in her chapbook of
poetry, Tracings. All three books are multiple award-winners. She is
also working on a memoir, Here's How I Don't Cook.
author of How to Write Your Own Life Story or Your Family's Saga, will
talk about how to turn this material into a book, covering:
1) why you should write it
2) how to go about it (even if you've never before written anything but emails)
3) how to make it interesting to others

The Author Apprentices chat on July 31st went really well. So
much, in fact, that the mods Renee and Cindy e-mailed me yesterday and
asked if I'd be interested in being the Featured Author at the site for
the whole month of October. Yay! I said yes (of course). October's my
fave month of the entire year, so that makes it even cooler!
