The Portable Writers’ Workshop

Posted on Jun 30 2014

PWCHi, there! Daphne Martin kindly agreed to give up her KILLER CAKES spot to me today, so I could promote THE PORTABLE WRITERS’ WORKSHOP.

I was speaking at a creative writing contest ceremony this past weekend, and I mentioned that I would be publishing THE PORTABLE WRITERS’ WORKSHOP this week. One attendee asked, “What’s a portable writer?” I explained that it’s the workshop that is portable…although, I suppose we’re all portable writers in that we write wherever we go.

This portable writers’ workshop is designed to give you all the information you’d receive at a regular writers’ workshop without the hassle, inconvenience, and expense. Part one of the workshop is directed at novel writers. I’ve written eight (and counting!) novels in Obsidian’s embroidery mystery series under the pseudonym Amanda Lee. I’ve written four novels in the cake decorating mystery series—two for Bell Bridge Books and two for Simon & Schuster. I’ve written a few standalone novels, and I even had my own publishing company for a few years. While operating the publishing company, I managed to get my mystery imprint’s line featured in Woman’s Day magazine in October of 2005 for a giveaway.

Part two is designed for freelance writers. There is a great need for content and a variety of places that hire freelance writers. You might think that a slow economy would make it difficult to find freelance work. In fact, the opposite is true. Some companies downsize and eliminate full-time employees and then hire freelance or independent contractors to work on a project-by-project basis.

Part three is a collection of articles I’ve written as features or blog posts, and I thought you might find them helpful. I wish you all the best in your own writing and hope I can help you achieve greater success!
