The Book Creation Workshop

If you’ve ever been told “You should write a book about that!”, if you’ve ever started to write and not known how to take the next step, if you’ve got a book written and have no idea how to reach your readers, then this is the place for you.

Set in the hallowed halls of Balliol College, Oxford, this one-day book creation workshop will take you on an amazing journey of learning, friendship and fun.

In this practical workshop, you will:

  • learn all about the powerful Flimsy Structures® Book Creation Process
  • fully plan your own book
  • set up your writing schedule
  • select your publishing preference
  • structure your marketing plan
  • leave knowing exactly what you want to do – and how to do it

 

Flimsy Structures

 
 

What is the Flimsy Structures® Book Creation Process?

Developed by experienced writer and writing mentor Sarah Williams, the Flimsy Structures® Book Creation Process is an astonishingly powerful and effective system which enables sustained creative thinking and writing. Some have described it as “the Heineken of creative thinking systems, reaching parts of the brain to which other systems don’t go!” Simply learning this system will be transformative. A half-day’s Flimsy Structures® course usually costs £350 – here it is included as part of the course.

Planning your book

Planning a book is a delicate process – you need to know where you’re going, but at the same time you need to leave room for flexibility, creativity, discovery and development. In this workshop you will learn how to hold this delicate balance so that you can find a way of writing exactly what you want, in the way that works for you.

Schedule

Set up your writing schedule

So many people start off with high ambitions and the best of intentions, meaning to get their book done in a few weeks or months. Sometimes years later, the book still lies barely half written, because they run out of energy and focus. We will help you identify the best writing schedule for you, working out how it will fit in realistically with your other commitments, and giving you clear short-term, achievable goals to make sure that, this time, the book gets done.

There are so many different ways of publishing and marketing your book so that it reaches the readers you want to communicate with that sometimes it feels impossible to work out which is the best way for you to get your book out there. Working with book publishing specialists, you will leave the workshop with a clear plan about where and how to publish your book so that it reaches your chosen readers.

Selecting a book
