Knock Out your Book begins again next week, on Thursday February 3, to be exact. I’m really excited to begin with this second cohort of writers. If you’re sitting on the fence, or if this is the first time you’re hearing about the class, reach out! I have space for one or two more people. You can find me at gerhardjane2@gmail.com.

Knock Your Book Out 2022

What is it, you may ask? Let’s answer the who first.

Therapists, counselors, social workers and healers of all stripes work with people in distinctive ways, and many have the instinct to share that contribution with more people. Having a book can help build your practice and bring you more opportunities to share your unique insights. Yet writing isn’t straightforward and it is certainly not easy. We may have the germ of an idea but not a clear sense of how to get started or how to sustain the momentum required to finish. A knowledgeable guide and good companions on the path can make all the difference. Join me for a four-week on-line class that will help move your book idea into a manuscript.

Now the what of it.

Informed by the inner roadmap of IFS (the Internal Family System model of Richard Schwartz https://ifs-institute.com/), this class will address both what we want to say and what gets in the way. Every meeting we divide our time between the psychological and the practical. We spend part of our time getting to know what gets in the way of flow-state writing as well as strengthen our inner editorial team and their working relationships. This involves a mix of mediation, writing prompts, and group conversation. We also devote time each session to the practical art and magic of writing and being a writer. This involves addressing issues such as mission/thesis statements, how/where/when to include your personal story, and outlining for clarity. Short homework and in-class writing assignments help to get you started or to refine what you already have. Discussion will address the age-old writer’s dilemma: finding the time to write, writing smart with the time you have, and setting attainable goals.

Jane Gerhard - Writer & EducatorWith your registration, each participant will receive an individual one on one session, scheduled to suit your needs. In this meeting we will review your progress and brainstorm next steps.
