Have you ever wanted to write a novel or memoir, or some other book project? Perhaps you have tried and just can’t stay on task and craft your writing into something someone else might want to read. Writing entails discipline flamed by passion, and there are tools of the trade that authors need to learn. Everyone needs inspiration and some mentors when they are writing, along with strategies to overcome writers’ block and other obstacles. This course will get you started, keep you writing, and provide the strategies, tips, feedback, and a support system to help you create the work you want and take it as far as you want. Bring writing materials and anything you are currently working on to both class meetings, and a bag lunch to the first.
