Two Upcoming Live Workshops with Christina Katz (that’s me!)

Hope you can come!

Christina Katz is teaching Nonfiction Writing Rhythms at Wordstock
Write short and get published sooner, rather than later. Find out why writers who set small goals typically breeze past writers who aim for the big gigs immediately. You’ll leave this workshop with a practical plan for nonfiction writing success.
Location: The Portland Convention Center, 777 NE MLK Jr. Blvd., Portland
Saturday, November 8th, 12:45-1:45 p.m.
Cost: $50.00 + festival pass, Register at
Christina will be signing copies of “Get Known Before the Book Deal” and “Writer Mama” at the Willamette Writers Booth from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Self-Promotion Round Table
If you have a book coming out or a service or class to offer, you’re going to need to kick up some interest in what you do first. People are always asking to “borrow” my brain to help them brainstorm ideas for promoting themselves and their books. But when it comes to brainstorming, we all know that several brains are better than one. So I will facilitate this round table discussion to help participants increase their visibility for all the right reasons.

In this three-hour brainstorming session, you’ll drum up ideas that will lead you to a clear-cut plan for promoting yourself and all that you offer. Bring with you a one-paragraph description of your mission, a short bio summarizing your expertise, and a list of any self-promotion you’ve already accomplished (better yet, read my new book, “Get Known” prior to the workshop). You will leave with more ideas than you can possibly carry out, including a few you might not have come up with on your own. Plan to have fun and connect with like-minded writers.
Location: The Wilsonville Library
Dates: Saturday, December 6, 2008
Cost: $99.00 for three hours (intro price for December 6th session only), Register at
