SCOTTSDALE SOCIETY OF WOMEN WRITERS
WELCOMES Dr. Laura Bush, author, editor and publishing consultant.
SPECIAL EARLY DATE: December 13, 2023
WHO: ALL Women Writers!
WHY: Mission: Scottsdale Society of Women Writers gives members access to events of interest, a format for exchanging ideas, an opportunity to network with other women writers/authors in camaraderie and support, and an alliance with professionals for writing, publishing, and marketing.
WHO: Dr. Laura Bush is committed to transforming the world through mission-driven books. In 2012, she founded Peacock Proud Press, an independent book publishing company that empowers authors to change the world with their words.
With a Ph.D. in English from Arizona State University and 30+ years of teaching people how to write, Laura has guided hundreds of sought-after speakers, successful entrepreneurs, corporate and community leaders, and memoirists to write and publish high-quality, nonfiction books.
Laura’s own book, Faithful Transgressions in the American West: Six Twentieth-Century Mormon Women’s Autobiographical Acts (Utah State University Press, 2004) is a ground-breaking work of literary criticism that grew out of her doctoral studies in memoir writing. She has published non-scholarly and scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Bush will discuss the CORE principles of the writing process and how she applies them to ghostwriting memoirs and hybrid business-related books for her clients at Peacock Proud Press.
