“The I AM WOMAN book challenge has been great! Back in 2012 I published my first book as a result of taking part in the challenge. I have since written and published my second book in July 2015 and I look forward to publishing my third book soon!”
We couldn’t have made it simpler this year, because we have organised I AM WOMAN BOOK PUBLISHING CHALLENGE MASTER CLASSES.
For the next phase of this I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Challenge we invite our members to write a chapter on ‘Looking Good & Feeling Great!’ which will be published in March 2017 just in time to be part of our International Women's Day Celebrations.
Our next I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Challenge Master Class is taking place in the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on Thursday February 16th 2017 from 10am – 1pm.
We aim to share tips how we aim to market both the publication and you as part of the books launch and the role you can enjoy playing as part of that.
If you are a Member of I AM WOMAN and want to be part of this anthology book you will need to register soon and pay your £100 registration fee, which is non-refundable once you have started attending and benefiting from our Book Publishing Master Classes.
The £100.00 (which is non-refundable once you have started attending and benefiting from our Book Publishing Master Classes) will entitle you to have 10 free books (retailing at £8.99), 1 free ticket top the book launch (£25.00 ticket value), free attendance at the I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Master Classes and have your profile raised in the pre and post publicity surrounding the project.
All you have to do in this next phase of the challenge is write 2,000 words on the anthology subject that will form a chapter in the book. You might have an experience, skills or just a message that’s important for you to share. You have a voice that so deserves to be heard. This experience also allows you the opportunity for you to find your voice, message and offers you a vehicle to be heard.
If you are a Member of I AM WOMAN one of your many Membership Benefits is the opportunity for you to join the I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Challenge.
You, like many women in business might be looking to become a published author and to:
- Be seen as a leading voice on your subject
- Get you and your business noticed above your competitors
- Develop better paid speaking opportunities
- Increase your marketing exposure
- Be noticed by the press and media as a leading light in your industry
Once a year we will be taking budding authors with us on a journey, which will see the launch of their stories in a business anthology.
The I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Challenge was launched originally in Cardiff November 2012 and on March 8th 2013 I AM WOMAN supported 12 female authors to write and publish their first book in just 3 months. Recognising that this was quite a challenge I AM WOMAN progressed the I AMWOMAN Book Publishing Challenge to help women become published authors by participating in the writing of an anthology book, written on an entrepreneurial subject theme to help women develop in their personal and professional business lives.
The books offer the reader an holistic view of a particular subject, with advice shared written by women from a whole host of different backgrounds and genres.
In 2014 we asked our members to write a chapter to sit in our ‘Playing and Staying at the Top of your Game’ ebook and the response was amazing. The women taking part grew so much as part of the process. By becoming a published author their Google rankings were lifted because Google picked-up them as published authors alongside their own social media activity.
I AM WOMAN took 16 female authors into the book publishing World when in 2015. We asked our members to write a chapter to sit in our ‘Embracing & Releasing The Celebrity In You! anthology book, which was launched to celebrate Internatuional Women’s Day 2015.

All profits being donated to our I AM WOMAN Foundation, which supports disadvantaged women in business. Click here for further information about our I AM WOMAN Foundation.
All you have to do in this next phase of the challenge is write 2,000 words (4/5 pages of A4), on the anthology subject that will form a chapter in the book. You might have an experience, skills or just a message that’s important for you to share. You have a voice that so deserves to be heard. This experience also allows you the opportunity for you to find your voice, message and offers you a vehicle to be heard.
The successful authors will be invited to attend a series of formal and informal writing I AM WOMAN Book Publishing Master Classes to help them find their voice on their subject and to be given lots of support to help them develop greater confidence and direction in writing their chapter.
Participants will leave this experience, having explored:
- Their personal uniqueness and how is translates into their writing
- How to shape and develop content to excite the reader by how to develop captivating content
- The importance of their chapter titles and calls to action
- How to shape their material to support the reader to action their advice into their business
- How to use this opportunity to promote themselves, their businesses, be seen as the ‘go-to’ person in that sector and gain greater exposure
Final submissions will need to be with us by February 2017 and we will be published in an ebook 28.3.2017 and paper-back early April 2017.
