Emily’s DC PodFest Session
Title: How To Turn Your Podcast Into A Book Workshop
Emily Prokop took her hobby podcast, The Story Behind, from something she did for fun to a book releasing October of this year. She is sharing her story, strategies, and resources she used to help repurpose her content from podcast episodes to chapters in her book, which has become a No. 1 New Release on Amazon. Her workshop will include an overview of the steps from pitching your book to organizing your writing to publishing or self-publishing to promotion. And, bonus (!), many of the tips for pitching a book and promotion are things you should be doing with your podcast anyway.
