The Road More Traveled: Self Publishing workshop
Presenter: Jerry Fabyanic, award-winning author of Sisyphus Wins
An individual’s foray into the world of published writings can be likened to the path taken by any hero, replete with all the phases, trials, obstacles, and guides who can lead the writer to his/her apotheosis: The publishing and selling of his or her work. This workshop will focus on the early stages of the adventure, to move from the point of inspiration, known in Joseph Campbell speak as the Call to Adventure, and the inevitable resistance that surfaces, which Campbell called the Refusal of the Call, to become a writer: Crossing the Threshold.
