Carmen Cook – Advanced Branding


Most of us have multiple identities. We fill any number of roles in our lives – Housekeepers, Chefs, Parental Unit, Spouse, Partner, Executive, Bookkeeper, Entrepreneur, Student, Teacher, Coach, Board member, Friend, Dog Walker, Chauffer… the list is endless.

Whether you work outside the home or not, the demands on your time are real and threaten your ability to establish a writing routine. And, if you’re serious about taking your writing routine to the next level, you’ve acknowledged these challenges.

This class will cover tips and tricks to help writers stop sabotaging themselves in their busy lives and creating a writing habit that works for them.


 We’ve all heard that we need a brand – but what is that and how do we build one?

The key is YOU. A Brand is an experience. It’s a feeling and how someone describes you when you walk out of a room. So the question is, how do we create this experience?

This class will cover how to create a branding system to effortlessly infuse your social media (and in person) interactions to build an authentic brand that is unique to you.


 Carmen Cook grew up in Montana, riding horses and dreaming of life beyond the mountains. As soon as she could, she started traveling, heading across the country for college before backpacking through Europe. She then earned her degree in theatre and moved to the Pacific Northwest where she promptly threw down some roots and began to write.

Carmen is a former member of Romance Writers of America, the Greater Seattle Chapter of Romance Writers of America, and a current board member of Writers for Diversity. Through these organizations she’s served as the conference chair of the Emerald City Writers’ Conference as well as on various advisory boards and committees, all of which have allowed her to hone her passion for connecting with writers at all skill levels. She’s utilized her professional skills to develop workshops on branding, body language and how to think of your writing as your business from the start of your career.

When not behind a keyboard you will find her chasing her husband and sons around a football field, loading up guitar amps for lessons and trying to imagine what comes next.
