Suffering from writer's block? Not sure if your idea is as focused as it should be? Having trouble organizing your thoughts or project? Whether you're just starting to draft a book proposal or you have a completed novel in a drawer, this helpful talk will cover all the stumbling blocks that we writers experience at some point or another in the process. Various techniques will help you hone your idea, address time management issues, and keep your motivation level high. You'll leave with creative tools and strategies to finish your book proposal, your manuscript, or any writing project you may have.

Local authors and former publishing executives Kerry Colburn and Jennifer Worick have paired up and created a series of workshops for aspiring authors titled "The Business of Books with Jen & Kerry." Bringing nearly 40 years of experience and 40 published books between the two of them, Jen & Kerry created this lively series of talks to offer insight, inspiration and tools for navigating the world of publishing.    

Each event in the series will take place at the Hotel 1000 and features a presentation hosted by Jen & Kerry on a specific topic relating to the book business.

Kerry Colburn is a Seattle-based author, editor, cocktail drinker, and mom of two young girls. Former executive editor at Chronicle Books, she now happily writes books from her (often chaotic) home or a variety of coffee shops in her neighborhood. She is the author of many nonfiction titles including How to Have Your Second Child First, Good Drinks for Bad Days and So You Want to Be Canadian? Her latest book, Mama's Big Book of Little Lifesavers, comes out in Spring 2011.

Jennifer Worick is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating & Sex. In addition, she has co-authored or written more than 25 hilarious and helpful books, including her newest titles, Beyond the Family Tree: A 21st Century Guide to Exploring Your Roots & Creating Connections and Simple Gifts: 50 Little Luxuries to Craft, Sew, Cook & Knit. Formerly the editorial director at Running Press, she has written and reviewed countless book proposals and shepherded many successful titles to market.
