for online language teachers who want to build an independent business

How to self-publish, market and sell your books and workbooks

Join us from May 18 to 20 to learn how to self-publish, market and sell your books and workbooks. Create a new source of revenue that will reduce your anxiety of looking for 1:1 clients. Hear from presenters and other online language teachers how a book can grow a community, expand your reach beyond 1 or 2 countries, restructure your business and make a positive impact in the world! Challenge  yourself to self-publish a workbook in 3 days with Veronika Palovska and win a hot-seat coaching spot with Elena Mutonono.

Writing a book on the topic that mattered to me helped me build connections with other teachers and grow a community of people committed to preventing emotional burnout and rekindling their passion for teaching. On top of that, my book sales kept my business going when I was evacuating from a war-torn part of Ukraine, unable to coach or run courses. Publishing a book was definitely worth all the effort!

Publishing my book for teens expanded my audience beyond just two countries, and I’ve been able to build online connections with bookstores, language schools and libraries. Later I turned each book into mini-courses, reading and writing programs for teenagers that spark their creativity, curiosity and passion for reading and learning about the world. I believe that through these small groups children connect with each other across cultures and learn to accept and celebrate each other’s unique stories.

Until I wrote my first story, I didn’t think I could use my own writing to teach Italian with more creativity. After publishing my stories, I created journals to help my clients on their learning journeys. Today my teaching business is built around stories that I write, and through them I help my clients get immersed in the Italian language, explore with their senses, have fun and enjoy the freedom of cozy-Italian-learning. My books have also given ideas to many Italian teachers to use my books in their own classes.
