About this Event

Have you been told you should write a book?

It could be anything – a novel; nonfiction; self-help; biography; a business, community, or organisation’s history; or it could even be something totally different!

And now you want to get it out into the world?

Busybird Publishing’s Book-Writing Boot Camp is about arming you with the tools you need to write and publish YOUR book!

So, if

  • you’re an aspiring novelist
  • you’re a business owner or entrepreneur and want to write a book that showcases your expertise, establishes you as a leader in your field, and proclaims you a published author
  • you’re a coach who has a methodology they want to offer to the world
  • you want to write a memoir or autobiography of your life, or a biography of somebody, or a history of your family, or community, but are unsure how to tackle it
  • you have already written a book, but don’t know where to go next

then Busybird Publishing’s Book-Writing Boot Camp is for YOU!

Book Writing Boot Camp is an intensive workshop that will cover things such as:

  • outlining
  • fleshing out your idea
  • structure
  • voice
  • prose
  • good writing practise
  • revision
  • overview of publishing
  • marketing tips
  • and all those little steps in-between.

It’s your one-stop workshop that will cover the life of your book, from conception to publication. This group will be limited to 12 participants and all participants will be eligible to receive discounts on our publishing services after having completed this workshop, should they wish to publish with Busybird Publishing.
