Demystify the publishing process.

I created the SILVA Method™ to help consultants identify, pitch, and write for the high-visibility publication that will best serve their business goals. Each of these three-hour workshops focuses on a specific stage of that methodology. You can take these workshops individually or register for all five. Enrollment is limited to 10 participants, and the workshops are recorded.

Whether you sign up for one workshop or all five, your total investment in these workshops will be applied to Pathway to Publication should you choose to enroll within one year of completing your first workshop.
