Dreaming Big: A Conversation about the Private and Public Sides of Writing
Is it enough to write for yourself? When is it time to bring your stories and poems to market? Publisher Brooke Warner (She Writes Press) and Tzivia Gover (author of Dreaming on the Page) will explore questions of solitude, audience, and when and if to make our personal narratives public. They’ll discuss how to harness the insight of your nighttime dreams, journal writing, and guided inquiry for deeper writing—plus they’ll get into some business savvy to help you know when and how to share your stories, whether with a group of trusted friends and family, or more publicly through blogging or book publishing.
