DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

IN-PERSON WORKSHOP AND LIVE WEBINAR

11:00 a.m.

In-Person Attendance Location: BookLogix Office at 1264 Old Alpharetta Road, Alpharetta, GA 30005

During this side-splitting seminar, Book Doctor Bobbie Christmas reveals hilarious examples of flawed writing drawn directly from manuscripts she has seen during her forty-plus years of editing. Be entertained while you learn how to avoid the same errors in your own work. Once you hear examples of what she calls “manuslips,” you will never make the same slips yourself. Laugh and learn your way to better, stronger, more marketable writing.

You’ll learn about:

  • Dangling participles and missing modifiers
  • Word choice
  • Juxtaposition
  • Purple prose
  • Pronoun confusion
  • Huh? (things that defy description)
  • Eyes (Her favorite; wait until you hear this one!)

Bobbie Christmas, author of the first and second editions of Write In Style, a quadruple-award-winning textbook on creative writing, admits to more than forty years in the publishing industry. Determined to make a living as a writer and editor, in her youth she did whatever necessary to gain entry into the world of publishing. Making her living with words, she has been a journalist, news editor, advertising copywriter, business communications specialist, magazine editor, and manager of the publications department for an international Fortune 500 firm. In 1992 she moved to metro Atlanta and founded Zebra Communications to work as an independent editor for several publishers and many individuals. She is also a columnist, freelance writer, author of books for writers, and publisher of The Writers Network News, a free monthly ezine for writers.

Author 101: Writing a Book from Proposal to Bestseller takes authors on a journey through creating a proposal worthy of a major publishing house, outlining a nonfiction book, creating a roadmap for the journey ahead, and then completing and finalizing a publisher-ready manuscript. Everyone needs help along the way, and this workshop will give authors valuable insight into the steps they can take to organize, write, and edit their books. This workshop will cover the proposal process to include the different structures and pieces most publishing houses require, how to outline and roadmap a book to prevent writer’s block and to ensure you stay on course, the best writing practices, some the biggest mistakes authors make and how to avoid them, and a number of different resources and tools writers can use to write a major publishing house–quality manuscript.

He has collaborated on books in the areas of self-help, business, leadership, sports, entertainment, law, and other nonfiction. Some of Justin’s clients include five-time Heavyweight Boxing Champion Evander Holyfield, NCAA Championship–winning basketball coach Jim Valvano, branding-and-marketing genius Joey Reiman, and numerous other entrepreneurs, self-help gurus, CEOs, coaches, entertainers, and thought leaders in their respective industries.
