February 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

GIODN is pleased to welcome author Sarah Lewis to share with us her insights on publishing in a competitive field. Sarah has published five very different books in the field of positive psychology and organizational development. In this session she will describe the different processes behind writing each book. It is hoped the session, which will include readings and small and large group discussions, will stimulate lively discussion about the challenges and pleasures of putting pen to paper to pass on our knowledge.
