Carla Naumburg, PhD on goals and takeaways from Harvard Medical School CME Publishing Course
Lisa: What initially brought you to the Harvard Medical School CME Publishing course?
- Self-help books matter. They help people in very real and meaningful ways.
- Writers need to take themselves seriously, and we need to share our writing with others as often as possible.
- I learned a variety of ways for utilizing social media to make connections with other writers and get the word out about my writing.
Lisa: Workman has recently published your book How to Stop Losing Your S**t with your Kids. In what ways did the Harvard Medical School writing and publishing course help you get there?
