Session 3: Submitting Devotions and Creating a Collection of Themed Devotions
Karen will show us how to submit devotions and also apply to write devotions for publications who assign devotions to authors.
A series of devotions can become a book if they are cohesive. Karen will help us center them around a theme and target a specific intended audience.
Karen will help us find the “Big Idea” of why the book is needed and what solution it will offer readers.
She will show us how to divide the big theme into smaller ones for weeks or months, or 30 topics for a shorter devotional book.
Karen will help us gather market ideas for our devotional books.
