In this edition of the Roundtable, host Tim Cavey connects with three recent authors to discuss their books, best practices on the path to publishing, and their goals for 2021.
Questions That Guided Our Discussion
- 1:07 – Who are you and what is your current context in education? Please introduce yourself.
- 3:22 – Tell us about your book: why did you write it, who is it for, and what do you hope readers to take away from it?
- 14:22 – What is your advice to the educator who feels that they have a story inside them but aren’t sure how or where to get started?
- 17:46 – Talk about the writing and publishing journey. What are some pieces of advice you could share with would-be writers in education?
- 33:16 – How much content do I have to have written before a publisher will agree to work with me?
- 39:29 – Look back to the beginning of your writing and publishing journeys. What choices or moves do you regret now that you might do differently if given the chance?
- 43:17 – What’s next for you? What are your content creation goals for 2021?
- 49:21 – Are you a OneWord kind of person? If so, tell us about your #OneWord2021.
- 51:50 – How can we connect with you and your work?
