Five-Year Creative Planning with Francine Puckly In this hands-on workshop, writers, illustrators, and artists of all types have the opportunity to turn their long-term creative hopes into concrete goals over a five-year period. Participants begin the workshop by defining five-year visions for their careers. But just as the idea for a novel doesn’t turn into a book without a plot and outline, our careers must have detailed roadmaps delineating the work that must be done, at what pace, and in what order. Five-year visions are turned into annual goals, and those annual plans give way to quarterly, monthly and weekly tasks. Participants will leave the workshop with concrete plans that incorporate all aspects of projects, including (but not limited to): topic research, number of drafts required, editor/agent research, submission goals and tracking, skill acquisition (conferences, workshops, writing retreats), and social media strategies/website development needs.
