Georgetown, Colorado — The Road More Traveled: Self Publishing Workshop for Aspiring Authors and Curious Readers is designed for aspiring writers and curious readers to learn about the world of independent self-publishing. According to the workshop description, “Attendees will learn about the importance of working with a sound, professional editor, book design, including how the book cover is important for shelf presence, and how to market their works. Curious readers will learn the above, but also how a writer thinks, thought processes, creative storytelling, and what a writer goes through to put thoughts into words and then onto paper.”
The Road More Traveled will begin at 1:00 with The Writer’s Path: The Adventure Begins, a workshop presented by award winning author of Sisyphus Wins, Jerry Fabyanic. According to Jerry, “this workshop will focus on the early stages of the [writing] adventure, to move from the point of inspiration, known in Joseph Campbell speak as the Call to Adventure, and the inevitable resistance that surfaces, which Campbell called the Refusal of the Call, to become a writer: Crossing the Threshold.”
From 3-5pm participants will attend a self-publishing panel discussion that will include a professional editor, book designer and other publishing professionals. Participants will have the opportunity to ask panel members specific questions. At 6:30pm there will be a Colorado author’s reading and book signing event that is open to the public. All are welcome.
