I know that many of you are not only parents, teachers, and librarians, but you are also writers in all stages of your career. If you are looking to increase your freelance income or work as a children’s writer, then I want to tell you about my friend Suzanne Lieurance. I met Suzanne about eight years ago at a retreat in the mountains of North Carolina even though we both lived in Missouri at the time! Since then, we’ve kept in touch and currently both belong to the Missouri Writers’ Guild. She is doing amazing things and helping writers all over the world with her Writing Coaching Program and The Morning Nudge.
Here’s a really short video (about 1 min. 30 sec.) about the coaching program and The Morning Nudge (which is $99.99 for one year):
What is The Morning Nudge?
Every weekday morning, Suzanne sends you The Morning Nudge, a short email, with tips to help you:
# Gain confidence as a writer
# Learn where and how to find freelance work
# Improve your overall writing so you land choice assignments
# Move your writing career ahead to the next level
If this sounds like something you’ve been looking for–something to really get your freelancing or writing career going when the kids go back to school, just click here and sign up! If you have any questions, you can leave them in the comments; and I will find the answers for you or ask Suzanne to come on over to Read These Books and Use Them and answer them. If you want her to answer some more private questions, just leave your email address, so she can contact you personally. Take it from me, I have attended one of Suzanne’s workshops at a writing conference, and she is a motivator!
One more exciting thing, I teach teleclasses for Suzanne. What this means is that each month, I teach over the phone on a certain topic for about 50 minutes. If you want to attend the class and are part of the coaching program, it comes with the program; but you can also buy just the class, and they are SUCH A BARGAIN! You can also buy the class in the archives once it’s been taught if you can’t attend the class at the given time and date. (The way a teleclass works is you call a number and have a code to enter at the time the class starts. Then you are connected with the instructor and other people in the class. You can ask questions at the end of the lesson.) I have two upcoming classes with Suzanne.
- Introduction to Social Networking for Writers (August 18, 7:00 p.m. CST): Find out why and how writers can use social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.com to help build their writing careers. The cost is ONLY $5.97!!!! (You can also take my more in-depth four-week social networking course through WOW! Women On Writing that starts August 23 and runs for 4 weeks. It’s only $100 and provides group instruction and support as well as one-on-one advice and critiques of your social networking sites.)
- Creating a Teaching Guide for Your Children’s Book: This is another class I will be teaching for Suzanne. It will be on Wednesday night, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. CST and it’s only $5.97 too! It’s not listed at the link above yet, but it will be when we get closer to September. If you want to make sure to register for the class or to listen to the archive later, then leave your email below and I will make sure to let you know when it’s up on the site!
- Suzanne is offering many different classes, including a cool 6-week screenwriting class. You can still sign up, listen to the classes already taught through the archives, and join in on the next class. Just go here.
I hope if you are a writer at any stage of your career that you can find the motivation and support that you need to be successful and achieve your goals. If you want to share any struggles or questions you have, please leave comments below! The beginning of the school year is a great time to get going with your own dreams.
Come back Friday for a guest post from Irene Roth, who shares a terrific book for kids and how to use it with them, too!
