Writers! Do you want to get published?
If you have been working on a manuscript or a book idea and want to know how to prepare it for publishing, this is an extremely practical workshop for you.
In his role as publisher, Randy must shepherd the raw creative work of writers into a form that is easily understood and can be read by a broad audience. In this workshop, he will help aspiring authors gain clarity about the process of submitting a draft manuscript—and then what must happen before that book can find its place on store shelves.
You will learn:
Randy works to demystify what can be an intimidating experience. If you have ever wished that you could talk to a real publishing insider and get your questions answered, this is your chance!
Creative Tune-up! Much like our breath, creativity is a life-giving force that flows through all of us—it is the energy that allows us to meet life’s challenges, express ourselves uniquely, and manifest our art in the world.
For Warrior Goddess, creative teacher, and firewalker HeatherAsh Amara, creativity is as necessary as breathing when it comes to experiencing the best that life has to offer. She teaches us to notice the blocks that arise to keep us from creative expression—because they are actually invitations to go deeper into our life’s true work.
When our creativity is blocked, many of the connective aspects of our lives, like communication, intuition, and even love, can also suffer. When our creativity is in flow, we see possibilities rather than obstacles, challenges become friends rather than foes, and love becomes the touchstone of every action.
In this highly experiential workshop, HeatherAsh will use a series of interactive exercises, intense breath work, and meditation/visualization techniques to help you open up your creative airways and get your creative energy back in flow.
Out From Under — Creating a new way to nurture the ruts, the creative blocks and the shadowland funk that is part of being a creative person. What you see in an artist's public profile—their Instagram, Facebook, and website sharing—are often the end product highlights of a deep process.
Most don't share the long days of self-doubt, feeling lost, wondering if their work will ever make sense to themselves (much less to the world!).
Melody Ross has had incredible success as an artist, but what many don't know is that on the way to creating her worldwide Brave Girls Club tribe and a lifestyle that most would envy, she lost everything. The process of listening to life and recreating herself as an artist one intuitive step at a time led her to understand how important it is to encourage and teach other creatives that it is safe to trust difficult times because they lead to breakthrough.
During this day-long intensive you will learn important ways to see through the dark; take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual self; and use everything you find along the way to supercharge your creative batteries to fuel your unfolding as a human and an artist.
Whether these creative ruts last days or weeks or months, or if you're in the middle of one right now, you'll find help and tools in this day-long course.
* You will need to bring a small supply of simple art supplies—we will provide this list well in advance of the event. A creative workbook/journal will be provided in this course that you will customize and add to.
