2019/08/23 Publication Club - A workshop on how anybody can get published on Amazon, just by using Word ②
The new AI age has the power to help creative people express themselves emotionally, artistically, and philosophically through technology.
When it comes to data and rules where there are right answers, it is best left to AI. For the questions with no right answers, the best people to answer them are those who can create.
In such a new era, we see more than ever active artists, designers, performers, photographers and videographers and others professions.
That's not to mention the creative cooks, chefs, bakers, writers, authors, directors, and composers.
One of the strongest tools one can use to express these ideas is the technology of the written word -- that is, books.
That's why we are holding a publication workshop, to help outfit people with the best tools to be creative in the new age of AI.
If you're an artist, you can write a book explaining your process and portfolio, show exhibitions and sell goods, or even write tutorials for budding artists.
If you're a performer, you can link your performance videos from an e-book, and explain your work in the form of words, photos, and videos.
Writing a book is often as easy as taking a look back on your own experiences.
There are many original ideas you may possess, from your experience working overseas, backpacking in foreign countries, or to know people from different cultures.
And if you use Amazon's self-publishing service, you can publish e-books that can be read on PCs, smartphones and tablets, and even paperbacks.
There is no quota -- you can sell as little as just 1 book and face no loss, and initial costs are free.
As long as you have data, you can publish. The most important thing is quality.
Through this workshop, we will help you create an outline for your work, to form a base from which you can create your product.
The instructor will guide participants using their own "deep perspective" framework to help organize ideas.
These seminars have already produced 2 published authors!
One of them self-published, and the other was able to sell their book to a publishing company to get their book on the commercial market.
・Any student or worker who likes to create
・People who like to create with their own methods
