Writeous Writers and Books Inc. in Opera Plaza proudly present award-winning author and lauded writing coach Joan Gelfand for a Writing Workshop based of her quintessential guide to successful authorship, You Can Be a Winning Writer: The 4 C's System to Author Success - Craft, Commitment, Community, and Confidence


You can learn to be a successful author ─ the 4 C's approach to successful authorship: Joan Gelfand, author of You Can Be A Winning Writer, has been teaching the 4 C's to aspiring authors at book festivals and writer's conferences for the past ten years, and helping writers around the country realize their dreams of becoming successfully published. Joan has taught her 4 C's method for becoming a successful author to college professors, CEO's, doctors, ghostwriters, poets, and playwrights.

On writing well: From first draft to building a reputation, the 4 C's discusses craft, commitment and gives solid tips on how to build a literary community and a fan base. Unfortunately, becoming a successfully published author does not stop with mastering craft, commitment and even building a community. Confidence is key, and Joan tackles this sensitive subject that keeps writers unpublished and manuscripts in the drawer. With the help of Renate Stendhal, Ph.D., Joan defines clear steps writers can take to overcome the demon of lack of confidence.

Writing strategies book filled with authorship and publishing tips: With a splash of humor, a dose of empathy and a volume of support, mastering the 4 C's includes real life anecdotes from famous and not so famous ─ but successful authors. You Can Be A Winning Writer is the go-to book for writers just starting out, to writers stalled after their first or second book, and for students. The 4 C's wisdom and stories will inspire and encourage.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
