Commenting on this new development, co-host Marilyn Shannon explains, “As Bob Marley said, ‘The greatness of a man is not how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.’ Books change lives for both for the writer and the reader in the most profound ways. We are excited to offer a contest to our workshop participants that will inspire them to new personal heights. This is the first contest of its kind and we are thrilled to see our workshop participants embrace and take on the challenge”.
Writers in all genres are welcome. Those interested in joining can get more information on the Self Publish Now web site. Winners will be announced the week of September 17th.
