Franklin is a strong advocate for nurturing the creativity of individuals who are passionate about writing stories, those who love to write, and even those who may lack the confidence to put their stories on paper. In the spirit of fostering a fun and enriching space for anyone interested in exploring authorship, practicing their writing, or embarking on a book-writing journey, Franklin is thrilled to offer a unique book writing workshop!
This workshop is Franklin's way of sharing his passion for writing and, more importantly, empowering people to have confidence in their storytelling abilities. It's an inclusive opportunity, welcoming students from grade 3 onwards through adults, with the exception that participants in elementary should attend alongside an adult.
So, what sets this workshop apart from the rest? Participants will have the incredible opportunity to craft their very own children's book manuscript under Franklin's expert guidance. While the intended duration is 4 hours, the workshop's flexible structure may extend or shorten a bit based on the participants' needs. At the end of the workshop, should you wish to publish your book on Amazon, Franklin's publishing team will provide support to make your book publish-ready. Furthermore, there's exciting potential for participants to earn ongoing income from their published works, and for students, having a published book title to include on college applications is a significant achievement. Throughout the sessions, Franklin will generously share his personal tips and strategies employed in his own book writing journey. Additionally, participants will receive an introduction to the fundamental concepts of creative writing. Along the way, you can anticipate loads of fun, and a collaborative, friendly atmosphere.
What's the underlying focus of this workshop beyond creating a book? In alignment with the core principles of the Franklin the Helper collection of books, this workshop aims to bolster self-confidence and self-motivation. Writing is a powerful form of self-expression that fosters social and emotional development while nurturing the creative mind. During the workshop, participants will be encouraged to use pen and paper for their writing, leaving tablets, electronic notebooks, and cell phones aside (unless there is a special need).
A particularly exciting aspect of this workshop is the opportunity to learn directly from Franklin himself. His book, "Bullies Made David Cry," made a remarkable debut as the #1 new release in Children's Christian Emotions & Feelings on Amazon! Furthermore, Franklin and his books have been featured on NBC Channel 5 News and Texas Today, ABC Channel 8 Good Day Texas morning show, and multiple print publications. In addition, this workshop is endorsed by the Microsoft BAM team and he has a partnership with PBS!
It's important to note that Franklin the Helper Children's Books, LLC will not incorporate any of the workshop's books into the Franklin the Helper collection. The individual books created by participants remain their exclusive property. Franklin the Helper Children's Books, LLC does not receive royalties from books published on Amazon through this workshop. Your creative journey remains uniquely yours!
