Demystifying the Writing and Publishing Process – Discover the Book Waiting Inside of You and How to Get It Published
The International Feng Shui Guild (IFSG) will welcome author, publisher, lawyer and feng shui professional Tisha Morris as a featured speaker on November 12, when she presents “Demystifying the Writing and Publishing Process” to members and the public via a live Zoom presentation. This event is the fifth and final in a year-long series of special speakers which supports the IFSG’s focus on education and holistic and business practices.
As a five-time author herself, writing has long been a passion and theme in Tisha’s life, beginning at the age of six by writing her own newspaper. She later decided that becoming an attorney would be the best way to gain writing credentials while making a decent living; but ended up not enjoying practicing law. Through her journey to discover her passions, Tisha crafted a life where she now comingles and celebrates all aspects of that journey – the attorney, the interior designer, the energy healer, and the author – into a full circle while also helping others find their own story within as she adds publisher and literary agent to her toolbox. When asked about advice for aspiring writers, she replied “Know what your medicine is that is unique to you. What unique perspective do you have that only you can write about?”
Tisha is also a professional feng shui consultant and teacher who operates her own successful feng shui school, Earth Home School of Feng Shui founded in 2011 and is a long-time member of the IFSG. Combining her writing and publishing background with her love of Feng Shui, Tisha is uniquely poised to present this experience for the IFSG, a membership organization for Feng Shui professionals, students, and schools.
The event is geared toward anyone who has thought about writing a book, is in the midst of writing a book, or has finished their book and doesn’t know what to do next.
