FREE The BIPOC Writers Toolkit: Project Manage Your Writing Life! [D.A. Navoti]
This is a free course for writers in all genres who are Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC). Are you unsure how to organize a literary project, like writing a book? Or do you need support organizing literary events, like a reading? Do you feel you’ve outgrown your “to do” list and need a stronger system of organization and accountability? In this course, students will learn project management principles, such as creating a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS); defining a project scope; estimating project costs (yes, even writing a book accrues out-of-pocket expenses!); identifying project threats; scheduling tasks and meeting deadlines; and allocating resources to support your needs. This course is open to writers and creative nonprofit managers, and it’s a great opportunity to network with your literary community. Students will walk away with a work plan they can successfully launch on their own.
