Event description

Description

Saturday 9th June ~ 10:00am - 4:00pm (with a break for lunch - not provided)

Birmingham & Midland Institute

With Cat Weatherill

A one-day course for writers who are struggling to make a living from writing.

How do you ask for more money when someone wants to book you? How can you pay the bills without taking a part-time job at Sainsbury's? How can you put yourself forward if you are an introvert?

This course will invite you to look at your attitudes to writing, money and self-worth as well as offering masses of practical advice. This isn't about writing for money; it's about making money from doing what you love.


Biography:


Cat Weatherill is a best-selling author and one of Europe's leading storytellers. She has been self-employed as an artist for thirty years, and credits her success to business mentoring, tenacity, necessity and selling office supplies in New York as a twenty one year old graduate.


Please note:

Courses are for over 18s. If you are a young writer, you can sign up for our Spark Young Writers Programme.

All Writing West Midlands short courses are collaborative, and you will learn as much from your fellow course attendees as from the tutor. You will be expected to play an active role in group tasks, and you will also have time to reflect on your own writing during sessions.

Course handouts are sometimes (but not always) available, and notes may be available in advance upon request. If you have any additional needs, please contact Writing West Midlands in advance of the course starting and we will try to assist you.
