From Jamie: "Folks, this one is really near and dear to my heart — and right in my own backyard. Having been a long-standing member of Pennwriters since 1993, I can tell you that these people put together events you won't want to miss. The speakers, many of them who are multi-published, are friendly and open to conversation. The class sizes are not overwhelming, allowing for ease in asking questions. This mini-conference (the large, statewide one is held in May each year) has three tracks, a wide variety of teachers and speakers, and, of course, ME! So if you've been wanting to learn more about writing and publication, please check out this event."

Here's what I will be teaching this year. I test taught this class in Meadville last year and left the participants excited about what they learned:

Independent State with Jamie Saloff {Self Publishing: Will You Profit or Lose?}

Learn how to calculate your royalties and income. Discover the best route for you and your book. Will you be the one to win the challenge by earning the most? In this workshop, you will learn about self-publishing while having fun playing Jamie’s Profit or Loss Game! All will be winners as Jamie explains all aspects of self-publishing while you compete against your fellow writers struggling to reach “published” standards while remaining profitable.

This conference boasts 3 workshop tracks, multiple, talented teachers.

JamieClass Sm

1. Drive Down Memory Lane: 4 Ways to Make Your Memoir Profitable: Are you writing a memoir? Unless you're a celebrity, sports star or other well-known personality, you may find sales slump without these few important keys to writing, publishing, and marketing your life's story. During this workshop, Jamie will call upon her years of design experience in the print-on-demand field to share ways memoir writing can be more profitable. You’ll want to know these valuable tips before you publish your book as knowing even one of these vital points could gain you tremendously in sales. Included in this informative class will be a) tips on how your story can be turned into multiple books; b) where the biggest dollars are for memoir sales; and c) how to ensure you’re targeting the right buyers when writing.

2. Driving Home the Sale: Are you selling books (art, products, or services) and engaging potential buyers in a profitable way? Do you want to avoid sounding like that annoying used-car salesman who’s pawning off his lemon? (I know you do!) In this interactive class, you’ll create a road map to selling success. Jamie will show you how to engage clients in a way that will have them doing the selling for you and keep them coming back for more. You’ll learn how to write website copy and social media comments that attract the right clientele to the books or other items you want to sell. You’ll learn the three types of customers you want to attract (and the one you don’t).

This conference boasts 3 workshop tracks, 15 workshop speakers.

Screen Shot 2014 09 28 at 10.06.33 PMHave you always dreamed of writing a novel or an article for your favorite periodical, but didn’t know where to start?

Perhaps you have written stories but feel you need to improve your characterization.

Maybe you’ve wanted to take an off-road: try your hand at becoming the next food critic, explore travel writing, or use your skill-sets to capitalize on the next “sensational news” event.

Has your writing hit roadblocks or been on a detour and you’re trying to get back on the correct path? Then you need to set your GPs for the Tom Ridge Environmental Center on October 18th for “A Writer’s Road Trip 2.”

July 22, 2012: Metaphysical Marketing Mastery: 4 Steps to Boost Your Heart-Centered Business from Surviving to Thriving Will be taught in a live classroom setting in Lily Dale, NY at Fellowships of the Spirit.

Jamie Anita sm

Are you a healer, medium, or spiritual entrepreneur?

Is your spiritual/metaphysical business struggling against a tight economy, preventing you from making the money you want to meet your expenses, comfortably take care of your family, and do the things you love most?

Are you constantly exhausted from working long hours, frustrated with dated sales methods that don't work, and stuck with tactics that offer meager results?

Imagine instead attracting lucrative clients who want to pay you what you are worth, giving you the opportunity to earn more in less time. Delight in having clients seek you out and recommending you to all of their friends. Regain the passion of sharing your gifts by gaining clarity around how to effectively promote your business with ease and grace.

Rev. Jamie L. Saloff will be speaking on Why Do I Feel Like an Ugly Duckling When I'm Really a Swan? Learn how secrets hidden in Hans Christian Andersen’s Ugly Duckling fairy tale reveal how to master your life and empower your past, including: Why you sometimes get the urge to run away from everything and everyone (and may even have a list of what to take); Why you may have felt as if you were adopted growing up (but probably weren’t); Why you may continually fight with chronic ailments; Why you struggle to make decisions; Why you may be a driven workaholic, shopaholic, Internet addict, movie addict, or even an alcoholic or drug addict; Why you may carry extra weight and can’t drop those 20-30-40 pounds or more; Why you may have had suicidal thoughts, particularly as an adolescent; Why you aren’t afraid to dress or act differently from others; And why your unusual childhood is so important now.

Learn how to turn these “symptoms” into tools that can transform your life now–instantly. They are all entwined within a children’s story you may have read growing up, fondly remembered, but never fully comprehended its implications toward YOUR life. You too can be transformed into a swan if you: Surrender to the calling of your heart; Be Willing to take the first steps forward. Become Aware of the doors opening all around you. Never doubt that you are here for a reason. During the call, Jamie will talk about the Swan’s transformation and offer 3 keys to making it happen.
