The Year of Your Book: Fiction


Friday, March 6, 2015 - Friday, April 10, 2015
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


How long have you been saying that you want to write a book? How much longer do you have to wait? This series of classes begins at the start of 2015, when the New Year inspires serious resolutions. A combination of in-class writing, creative play and exploration, serious critique, deadlines, and mutual support, the goal is a solid draft (and celebration of your accomplishment) by the end of the year. Participants can go the distance, but the class is designed to accommodate ebb and flow according to where you are in the process.

These courses may be taken altogether or à la carte.

6 Fridays, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., 3/06/2015–4/10/2015

This is part 2 of a 6 section year-long course. This class is capped at 9 students
