The Five-Year Plan: Using Long-Term Planning Strategies to Turn Dreams Into Reality (with Francine Puckly)
In this three-hour, hands-on workshop, writers and illustrators have the opportunity to turn their long-term creative hopes into concrete five-year goals. Participants define five-year visions, which are turned into annual goals. Annual plans give way to quarterly, monthly and weekly tasks. Participants will leave the workshop with plans that incorporate all aspects of their projects and goals.
