Cali Gilbert is a bestselling author and transformational book coach, who coaches women – especially those transitioning out of homelessness – through the entire book-publishing process: writing, marketing, and publishing.
Cali is also a screenwriter and director, and head of the conference’s Writing for Hollywood.
For writers interested in transitioning from page to film, Cali stressed the importance of
relationship building, which she emphasized should be approached from a “how can you help them” perspective vs a “how can they help me” one.
Cali added that an eagerness to learn is essential to success in writing for Hollywood.
Cali produced her film “Invisible” about homelessness in LA largely to shed light on the importance of prevention – as opposed to society’s tendency to try to address homelessness after the fact.
Cali was planning a writers retreat in Santa Monica this September called “Awaken the Muse,” to teach six heart-centered women how to write, publish, and market a transformational book, as well as how to connect with their inner muse.
