The Writer’s Bootcamp & Symposium is an interactive nationally recognized workshop presented by Bestselling, award-winning Author and Business Coach Anesha A. Sharp. This workshop is designed with authors in mind.  It is tailor-made to assist people who desire to write and publish a book that sells. Whether you’re just getting started in the writing process or have already started but feel stuck, we are here to get you to the finish line! 


The workshop will cover:
