Words can’t express how humbled, thankful and ecstatic I am to see the growth of Authentic Worth. Founded in October 2018, it was a website. A year later, it has transitioned into conducting several workshops for aspiring self-published Authors, providing publishing services for manuscripts and online course(s) teaching on the fundamental aspects of writing a book.
We wanted to give Authentic Worth a twist so we invited two professional solo artists Nike (adenike_music) and Joash (joashscott) to give our attendees a different perspective into the workshop. The vision was to make it very fun, interactive and engaging involving the body, mind and soul. We wanted to create a new twist and provide something different to which the audience enjoyed a lot!
Being split into three teams: Soprano, Alto and Tenor, our professional artists gracefully performed with a singing activity also known as “call and response – how are you today?” – which not only got them engaged but demanded another opportunity to have another singing activity! We are impressed!!
Below are several feedback(s) from the workshop on Saturday 21st September 2019:
“A well-planned workshop to unlock the barriers that are keeping them from writing their first book. Each section of the day was well thought out including the warm-ups”. – Lillian O (Podcast)
“Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on Saturday 21st September 2019! Was a great pleasure to be a part of the warm up section on the day! I met some incredible people, and learned so many practical skills. Despite not being an aspiring author (I’m a music artist) I noticed that many of the principles involved in book writing are the same, when it comes to releasing music. Even if you are not looking to write a book, I would STILL advise you to attend one of Esther’s workshops! You’ll certainly learn some transferrable skills that you can apply or implement in your own life or business”. – Joash Scott (Solo Artist)
“The workshop was amazing, it was an eye opener and also informative. The event was well organised, I really enjoyed it and also made new friends. I will recommend this event to anyone who is planning or wish to write a book”. – Vivianne Duah Odei (Radio Podcast)
“On Saturday 21st September I attended Esther’s book workshop at Catford. I was really inspired to meet new people, the information, group tasks and speakers too. I was really honoured that I attended on Saturday. The information was in depth and Esther did exceedingly well in giving a direct clear message which she always does at all of her events and workshops. You expanded well in speaking about all your three books that you wrote so far. What really touched me the most was out of all your three books, From Glory to Glory was the most powerful book you have written, and gave a clear message to the audience when you spoke about it. Well done to you girl. Thank you and a biggggggggg massive thank you for doing the workshop. You deserve all the success and more blessings to come to you too!” – Maria Agbarha
The content from Authentic Worth and our guest speaker Samuel (wegrounded) on book covers, we provided the audience a deeper-insight and understanding into publishing a book using our own lives, imagination and circumstances. We listened to videos including JK Rowling learning about her resilience in achieving a book publishing deal, to the late Author Toni Morrison who passed away in August 2019, leaving a lasting legacy to women of colour.
In particular I spoke about what inspired me to write in 2012 through my journal, and being informed I would be inspiring young women in the future. I used my journal and online blog to inspire me to start writing a book and how I carried on the journey of my writing career. We split into teams and informed the audience to talk about what their book would ideally be about and when they would like to get it published (accountability is key!)
Authentic Worth will be having upcoming workshops and events so stay updated with our social platforms on Instagram and Facebook
