Find the Readers Who Will Love What You Write!

Learn my system to understand who will appreciate and support your writing.

Join me for a workshop that will help you understand who your ideal readers are, where to find them, and what engages them. This becomes the basis for empowering you to know what to share, where to share it, and how to finally reach the readers who will love what you create.

  • Live event: Friday September 8, 2023 at 12:30pm ET
  • Full recording provided to all who register
  • $49

Understanding your ideal readers helps you:

  1. Craft the messaging for your website, and anywhere that you describe you and your work.
  2. Understand how to position your newsletter so it will attract subscribers.
  3. Know what to share that will engage people who will love your writing — whether that is through social media posts, an email newsletter, or anywhere that you share online or off.
  4. Identify where to find these readers online, and give you ideas for how to engage with them in a manner that feels natural, not promotional.
  5. Discover who your readers admire and follow, giving you deep insight into what engages them.
  6. Determine the places you may want to pitch yourself as a podcast guest, submit essays, or encourage a collaboration.
  7. Create marketing and publicity strategies that are effective.
  8. Develop an engaged audience of people who actually appreciate your writing, and will support you and your books.

I have worked full-time with writers for more than 13 years, helping thousands of them get clarity on how to share their writing with people who it will resonate with.

In this session, I will share the processes I use every day with writers of all types: fiction, nonfiction, memoir, essays, and poetry. I have also worked with writers from every publishing path, whether it is traditional, indie, hybrid, etc.

This session will be packed with actionable strategies, clear examples, and advice that comes from in-the-trenches experience with writers.

Find Your Ideal Audience.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to think about an ideal reader for your work, what are the common mistakes writers make in identifying them, and a huge mindset shift for how you can consider finding your own ideal readers.
  • How to define your Key Messages, clearly communicating what you write and why you write it in a manner that will engage your ideal readers.
  • How to create Audience Personas that dive deep into defining an actual person who will love your writing, not just demographic descriptions of a vague audience that you can never seem to find.
  • How you can put this into action, via my Whole Reader Framework. Here we will work through examples of how to connect what you write about to deeper themes that truly motivate people to notice what you share and engage.
  • The secrets of conducting Marketplace Research to find where your readers are, what engages them, and how you can leverage these insights to create meaningful and authentic marketing plans.
  • How to manage the research process so that it feels accessible and not overwhelming.
  • Create your 1-Page Ideal Reader Profile that will act as a daily reminder of the person who will love what you write!

I will also answer your questions in a full Q&A session. Every question asked will get answered.

If you can’t make the live event, don’t worry! You will receive a recording after the event.¬†All recordings are accessible for 30 days after the event so you have time to review again and again and take action.

Access to everything listed above costs $49. The live workshop will take place on Friday September 8th at 12:30pm ET. I will present for 60-90 minutes, and then answer questions in Q&A for what I assume may be an additional 30 minutes.

In working with writers for so long, I have come to believe information alone will not help you reach your goals of ensuring you develop the platform you need, which is why I am offering other ways to ensure you take action and get the help you need by getting direct feedback from me.

Choose one of these three options:

Workshop + Q&A

  • Workshop
  • Live Q&A
  • Recording

You get access to the live workshop, where I will present for about an hour, followed by a live Q&A. You can ask questions via the live chat with all of the other attendees. Since I know many people often can’t make a live event, I will be sending out the video replay soon after the live event.

Workshop + Q&A + Feedback

  • Workshop
  • Live Q&A
  • Recording

Here you get everything from the previous package (Workshop + Q&A), plus direct private feedback from me about your work. I will send you a questionnaire to fill out, and then provide  specific recommendations delivered to you via a private video, likely 10 minutes in length or so. This is shared only with you.
