Workshop: Shut Up & Write Your Book

A Great Book Outline Will Get You Everywhere

How many aspiring writers spend years throwing the proverbial spaghetti at the pages of their hypothetical book to see what sticks? All of that rewriting and thinking about writing is time spent that they’ll never get back; hours that could have been better spent living life—or at least writing about it.

If you've thought about writing a book, you've probably also thought you'll do it, “When I retire,” “When I have more time,” or “When I finish cleaning the bathroom. With a strategic and thoughtful book outline and there’s no stopping you from turning your “When I’s” to “Today I’lls.”

Designed for non-fiction writing projects, Shut Up & Write is a two-hour hands on workshop for writers who just need a place to actually start pulling the idea from their head and putting it on paper (or screen). You won’t just sit back and listen to two professional editors tell you what works, you’ll create your book's outline with live resources available to you.

What You’ll Write Off With

Come prepared to work on your own book idea, learning practical tools for planning, developing, testing, writing, and actually FINISHING your book!

  4. Professional feedback specific to your project or outlining roadblocks
