Workshop on “Forbidden Facts”

with Craig Biddle

6 hours total | 4 sessions, beginning October 6, 2021

Join me for a workshop analyzing and evaluating my book in progress, “Forbidden Facts: Moral Truths Your Parents, Preachers, and Teachers Don’t Want You to Know.”

This book is a revised and expanded version of my article “A Teenager’s Guide to the Morality of Self-Interest,” which was published in The Objective Standard (Spring 2016).

In the workshop, I’ll present the revised material chapter by chapter, explaining my thinking about the book’s content, structure, level of abstraction, tone, examples, and other elements. You’ll learn about the kind of thinking and due diligence that goes into creating a compelling book. And your feedback will help me to improve the draft in preparation for publication.

The workshop will consist of four sessions in October, on Wednesdays (beginning 10/6), from 8am to 9:30am Pacific Time.

I hope you’ll join me for the workshop!

—Craig Biddle
