You Could Write a Book. Sharing Your Ideals with the World.

Session 1
Sylvia Martinez

The focus of this conversation is both practical and philosophical. Educators invested in project-based learning often wonder how to bring these ideas to larger audiences. Writing a book is a way to do this. It’s also useful for building a professional brand and establishing yourself as an expert.

Part 1 of this conversation will be an overview of how books get written and published today. Both e-books and physical books have evolved in recent years and the process has gotten easier and more accessible. Authors can choose to work with a publisher, or self-publish, and we will discuss the pros and cons of these choices.

Part 2 will be about the process and logistics of writing a book, including tools and platforms, understanding the editing process, layout, and more.

Part 3 will offer participants a chance to share their ideas for writing a book and get feedback from the audience.

Conversational Practice

Participants will share their ideas that might make a good book. We will workshop the ideas in groups and get feedback from the audience. Is it a good idea? Can it be better?
