VSU Offers the Awakening of a Dream

The Department of Continuing Education at Valdosta State University will host The Awakening of a Dream on March 31. The new professional development course is an introduction to book publishing and will take place from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.

The interactive workshop will be led by author Verna Foster Harvey who will guide participants through the book publishing process, including the understanding of the market for readers, selecting a publisher, sound business practices, and much more.

Harvey is the author of two books Growing God’s Way, released in December 2004, and the Blessedness of Waiting on God, released in December 2006. She is also a local business owner whose business evolved into an avenue for which to market her books. Harvey holds a Master’s in Public Administration from VSU and is currently employed with the university.

There is a $60 registration fee for the class. Those who wish to participate in the class can register by calling the Department of Continuing Education at 229-245-6484. After March 23, the registration fee increases to $70.
