When indie author Lizbeth Meredith published her memoir, Pieces of Me: Rescuing My Kidnapped Daughters in late 2016, she knew the stats weren't in her favor. A literary agent told her that no one would read a "misery memoir" any longer that wasn't published by a Kardashian, and if she published her book, it had a less than three percent chance of being adapted for film.

But there are many reasons to write our stories beyond publication: healing, connection, and legacy.

In this workshop, you will learn how the author persisted, and what helped her book to eventually become an Amazon bestseller and a popular TV movie titled Stolen By Their Father.

From healing and connection, to leaving a family legacy, the reasons for writing and how to start the daunting journey of sharing your own story will be discussed. How to muscle through self-doubt, even when you've little time, and resources that will propel you from a want-to-be writer to the author you were meant to be.
