Writers’ Week: How to Make Money from your Writing with Louise Tondeur (Workshop)

Join Louise Tondeur for an online writing workshop on Thursday 21st October, 6-8pm as part of New Writing South’s Writers’ Week.

Making money from writing is more about mindset that you think it is. In this workshop, Louise will show you why and what to do about it. In a practical session – including lots of resources – she’ll lead several exercises to help you to understand how you are scuppering yourself when it comes to earning money from your writing. She learnt this the hard way and now she’s on a mission to tell people about how to live their best writing life – and that includes getting to grips with the business-side of writing. Louise will talk about the 3 Ss: Systems, Sales and Psychology (that she learnt from a top business coach) and how they apply to the creative life. This workshop will be friendly and fun, and Louise promises not to put anyone on the spot – no compulsory sharing.

Suitable for writers at all stages.
