  • the challenges and opportunities that indie authors face in the coming year and how creative planning can help
  • the importance of rest and play to the creative process, in publishing as in writing, and the principles that enable creative publishing.
  • the three hats an indie author must wear and how to improve your abilities under each

Throughout the workshop, Orna and the group will share ideas and experiences, and tips on topics such as time management, finding inspiration, and overcoming resistance.

You'll leave with a plan for making, marketing and managing your book business already filled out, and feeling motivated, energised and raring to go.
