This course is designed specifically for those who long to find their authentic voice through writing.
In this course, you will learn how to navigate the publishing world with ease and confidence …
Without the uncertainty of not knowing where to start, the fear that your story is too small or being held back by imposter syndrome.
Experience the thrill of excavating your story, the joy of finding your own voice, and the triumph that comes from making sense of your unique recovery narrative.
I want you to know that you’ve come to the right place.
Just like you, I suffered from writer’s block for years.
For close to 20 years, I spent my days editing the work of talented writers, and my nights dreaming of writing myself.
Then, in 2013, I published an international bestseller.
As a best-selling author, award-winning editor and writing coach, I possess a deep knowledge of the world of publishing and profound knowledge of the craft of editing.
I have made it my mission to help others transform their personal experiences into compelling memoirs. I have designed the course I would have loved to experience decades ago… and now I present my offering to you.
You’ll not only have your story in hand, but you’ll know the exact steps to take to get it published. You’ll meet best-selling authors and book agents who can help get you published.
You know you’ve wanted to tell your story for years. Fear, procrastination, or imposter syndrome keep getting in the way. You worry that you’re not good enough, your story is too small.
Not to mention: you have no idea where to start.
You’ve scribbled furiously in the pages of your journal, you have yellow stickies with good ideas all over your desktop, and 50,000 words on your computer … but it all just feels like loose ends. You can keep doing what you’re doing and stay stuck, lost, and frustrated--or you can make a decision that could be the turning point in your career.
Writing Your Recovery is a transformative eight-week course designed specifically for aspiring memoir writers. It will show you precisely how to overcome writer’s block, write your compelling story, and take the right steps towards publication.
Whether you are new to the memoir-writing world, or you have been longing to write your story for decades, this eight-week live and interactive course will take you from a position of uncertainty to the joy of finding your authentic voice.
Ann brings more than four decades of experience to this course and will leverage her expertise to ensure your success. Through this course, you will have access to her networks and connections as she becomes not only your course facilitator but your writing coach and personal advocate.
