Publishing Consultant to Conduct Workshop

March 4, 2011

New York, L.A., and Chicago publishers don’t hunt the everyday world of suburban Maryland for new writing talent… but one veteran publishing consultant does.

Publishing consultant and bestselling author David Hazard will host a 4-day Writing Intensive Workshop at Cultural Arts Center from March 10 – 13. Hours for this lively, interactive session are Thursday through Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.

“I’ve been coaching writers for 32 years, and I’m looking for undiscovered writing talent to help launch new careers,” Hazard said. “I want to meet those writers, new or already-experienced, who want to deepen their understanding of the craft and who want to learn the techniques that produce successful writing, he said.”

The workshop will help participants develop their skills by locating your most potent core concepts, discovering the power of your “voice,” then building on this foundation with effective writing techniques. Participants also learn how to open up the creative mind, and cull more time and space in their daily life to create. In addition, attendees will also get an insider’s view on the edges of publishing, and tried-and-true tips on how to break-in.

In his 32-year career in the publishing field, Hazard has launched the careers of more than 200 new authors. Among his authors are Jeff VanVonderen, cohost of the Emmy-Award winning program “Intervention” (A&E Channel), and 14-million-selling author Stormie Omartian.

Hazard has consulted with companies such as Random House, HarperCollins, Penguin-Putnam, and others. He is the author of 30 books, including Blood Brothers, which led to its subject, Dr. Elias Chacour’s Nobel Peace Prize nomination, and is now in 21 languages.
