Write Your Heart Out: 2-day workshop series

Write Your Heart Out: 2-day workshop series

Have you thought about writing an article, a book or creating a blog to express your ideas?

Many helping professionals have – whether it is to share their knowledge or own growth experiences, express their professional ideas, or enhance their professional standing.

However, as you may have already found out, there can be a big gap between thinking about writing and actually writing.

This 2-day workshop series is led by an editor-author team with decades of mental health publishing experience. It will provide the bridge that will help you to get from thinking to doing.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • define your topic
  • access a writer's mindset
  • identify your audience
  • build your platform.

In addition, Babette and Deborah will provide you with core writing strategies that will get you started and keep you going. They will also help you understand the value of ‘short form’ writing (blogs, articles, Op Eds). You will leave the workshop with concrete steps for starting your own writing project, whether it be a blog post, article, Op Ed, or a book.

Ideal for

Any professionals working in caring and clinical professions who have a book idea or one in development.
