Continuing Class presented by Linda

From Writing to Speaking

This continuing session is for writers and speakers who want to start or grow writing and speaking ministries.

Linda will share her experiences as a writer turned speaker, and talk about:

1.      Identifing your heart messages as well as your calling to write and speak.

2.      Organizing both your written and spoken messages.

3.      Tips to create powerful messages.

4.      Crafting your writing.

5.      Crafting your spoken messages.

6.      The business side of writing and speaking.

7.      Discovering a wealth of writing and speaking venues.

8.      Creating and implementing your marketing plan.

The art of writing and speaking is a craft you can cultivate as you write and speak words that will change the lives of your readers and listeners.  If you are a writer who longs to hold the microphone, this workshop will show you how to win it and keep your audiences moved and engaged. It will also show you how these two disciplines work together to create the synergy you need to propel your ministry forward as you share the messages of your heart.
