The 12-month Manuscript Workshop

Various times and locations. 

The 12-month Manuscript Workshop is meant for people who have great ideas for books, fiction or non-fiction, but are struggling with getting their manuscript produced. It may seem overwhelming to write an "entire book" or you may think you don't have the time. 

At the end of this workshop, you will walk away understanding what it takes to produce a manuscript and having a complete, concrete, month-by-month plan for how you can get it done based on YOUR schedule and YOUR lifestyle.

This course explores the difference between telling a plot and crafting a story, where you kind find strong plot ideas, and an exploration of the components of book beginnings, twists, and endings. 

At the end of this course, you should have gained ideas for fine-tuning your current plot or coming up with new ones.
