Publish Your Book!
with Krista Rolfzen Soukup

Do you have a book idea but do not know where to start? Are you confused about the many publishing options out there?

This class is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a book. The class will discuss today’s book industry, publishing options, first steps in getting a book published and what an author can expect once their book is published.

The class instructor is Krista Rolfzen Soukup, owner of Blue Cottage Agency. Her agency, located in the Brainerd lakes area, provides services for writers, authors and publishing companies throughout the United States. She works as a literary agent, publicist and publishing consultant offering years of experience and representing successful authors across the country.

Students will explore the art of needle-felting, which uses specially-barbed needles and fluffy wool to create 2 and 3-dimensional forms. In this class we will make a firmly felted 3-dimensional rabbit and add glass eyes and bendable legs.

Each student will receive a reusable mat and set of felting needles, which is theirs to keep after the class. Additional supplies including wool and tools, will be available for sale from the instructor after class. Students providing their own mats and needles will receive a $5 voucher towards supplies.

Instructor is Lisa Jordan. Lisa has been needle-felting since 2006 and is officially hooked. Her work has appeared in a number of craft books and magazines. She writes about her life under the poplar and pine at By day she is the Director of The Crossing Arts Alliance.
