Well let’s face it. Trying to finish a book-length work is kind of a clusterfuck. If this sounds like you, join Lidia for a webgasm focused on strategies for finishing your book, including shaping the whole, amplifying the heart, and steps for moving work into the world. Includes three recently published guest authors who have taken CW Body of the Book and are living proof that you can publish yours without losing your soul and with a vibrant irreverent community of art angels and rebels.

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author the short story collection Verge (Riverhead Books), the novels The Book of Joan (Harper Books), The Small Backs of Children (Harper Books), and Dora: A Headcase (Hawthorne Books), and the anti-memoir The Chronology of Water (Hawthorne Books). Her TED Talk “On the Beauty of Being a Misfit” has received over 3 million views, and spawned The Misfit Manifesto (TED Books/Simon and Schuster). She lives and collaborates in Portland, Oregon at Corporeal Writing. She is a very good swimmer.
