What you'll do

You dream of writing a book, but don't know how to make it happen. We designed the Writing Workshop so you can get further along than ever before in your goal to author a book. Whether you're starting from scratch with an idea on a paper napkin, or you have a finished manuscript and need an experienced eye for edits, we'll make the most of our private day together. Before you arrive for our experience, you'll wan to email us your current manuscript (Word doc) and/or outline, notes, whitepapers, blogs, videos, or any other materials you'd like us to review ahead of time. Please also "friend" us on Facebook and/or "connect" with us on LinkedIn, as we will review your personal and/or professional page(s) in advance. Once you sign up, we'll also ask you to complete a Writing Workshop Questionnaire, a set of 12 questions designed to jumpstart our fun together. During our time, we'll spend the first half workshopping your materials, your goal, your message, and your readership. After a food break (provided), we'll spend the second half outlining the book-to-be. If you have a manuscript draft, we'll dig into edits. At the end of our Writing Workshop, you'll leave with an outline and/or an edited manuscript, and proof on the page that you have a book worth publishing. You'll also have had a lot of fun working with the most experienced writers and editors in the industry!

Eland

I'm Eland, co-host of the Writing Workshop in Charleston. My partner, Keith Farrell, and I help authors-to-be, entrepreneurs, experts, writers, dreamers, and do-ers to author and publish their book. If you have an idea for a book, we help you make it a reality. Keith and I have helped thousands of authors to write, edit, and publish books. We cut our teeth as fiction writers, then worked in publishing as in-house editors and ghostwriters for business book publishers. After a few years providing our industry services to an exclusive bunch of authors, we realized there was a growing need to help even more people write books. So we founded Conversation Publishing and started the Writing Workshop, a private half-day retreat that allows us to use our deep industry experience to help you brainstorm, write, edit, and publish your book-to-be.
