Let's Write Workshops

Do you have a story which begs to be told? A message you've wanted to write for years, but you can't find the discipline, time, or even hope that publishing a book is possible?

Have people told you that you should write a book, an article, or a study -- and you want to -- but don't know the first thing about effective writing, book proposals, agents, or publishing?

If you do nothing, that book won’t write itself! Publishers won’t come knocking down your door! And your dream will go untouched, leaving you feeling defeated for yet another season of putting off the mission you know you’ve been called to accomplish.

I understand what it’s like to have a story burning inside of you and a message that has changed your life, which could change others' lives as well. I approached an agent with my first book in 2006, and in ten years have published five books and a Bible study with major publishing houses and self-published another study. I mastered the art of getting the attention of an agent, the mechanics of an effective book proposal, and landed a three-book deal of my dreams just a few years ago. Now my agent is bringing books to me to write!

I have a Master’s degree in Writing and Literature, as well as dual degrees in broadcast journalism and international relations from the University of Southern California. Over the last ten years, I have traveled around the country communicating the messages I am most passionate about, and my books have been translated into Korean, Polish, Portuguese, German, and Spanish. Prior to becoming a speaker and author, I spent years teaching writing at the high school and college level, and happily served as a writing tutor. I now offer editorial services to select clients. I absolutely love helping others craft their messages with passion and precision, with effective life change for their reader as a result. Here are a few testimonials from women who I have helped:
 



Testimonials

"Jennifer Strickland has a wealth of experience in getting a book to press. Jennifer's counsel was invaluable and saved me a great deal of heartache and needless work. I'm so thankful I didn't wait and met with her before I began to write my book. She will educate you on all your options and help you decide what is best for you. I highly recommend Jennifer Strickland's Let's Write Workshop for those who are just beginning. Jennifer can help birth your book in you!"  - Michelle Hearn, contributing writer to the Gateway Groups blog and author of the Beautiful Lies Leader Guide.

"Jennifer's encouragement to my writing has been invaluable. She entered into my project as if it were her own. She guided me through the writing process and helped me see a systematic pathway to share the message I wanted for my reader. Her dedication to my book has turned what I felt was random into an organized, cohesive piece I am proud to share with the world." - Marti Martin, author of The Bold Walk and (soon to be released) So Now What?

 


I’ve created the Let’s Write workshops to train women to effectively communicate their messages. At whatever step in the writing process you are — brainstorming, outlining, writing, editing, publishing — or if you are a seasoned writer and want to hone your skills — the Let’s Write workshops will equip you with the necessary information to: 

  • distinguish the difference between self-publishing and traditional publishing and choose the best option for you
  • write an effective book proposal that will jump off the heap and make a publisher pay attention to your work
  • grab the attention of agents and choose the best agent for you
  • understand the secrets to creating a writing rhythm despite all the distractions clamoring for your attention
  • wrestle your writing schedule to the ground so you come to the writing table with a clear head
  • write through the hard parts of your life, using only the most relevant material to help your reader
  • edit with wisdom so your published piece is both authentic for the reader and honoring to your loved ones
