Frequently Asked Questions:
I feel shy about sharing my writing because I am afraid people might not like it and criticize me. Do I have to share what I write with the group? Feeling shy about sharing your writing is very common for writers. You choose first of all if you want to share and if you do, you set the boundaries which make you feel safe and supported.
I worry I won't be able to finish writing and publishing my book in nine months. Does this happen to some people in the program? The timeline of when a book is completed is unique for each individual. This is a program where you work at your own pace. Each person has their own right timeline for progress on their book. Goals are set by members based on what is best for them.
How much does the program cost? The Birth a Book Program is set up where you receive membership with all the included benefits in exchange for sponsoring the education of four students at the HEART in Haiti School for a year, for a total of $2000. Flexible payment plans and scholarships are available.
What happens if I can't attend a meeting? Life can bring surprise obstacles to each of us and there may be times when members are not able to join a meeting and that is okay. This is a not a class where you will be graded. Maria is always happy to record meetings, if you ask her to do this ahead of time.
