    Are you in the middle of a first draft? Second, third, or where is this going draft? Have you written scenes but need help stringing them into a story? Perhaps you aren’t sure how to get past the middle. This course will help stem off roadblocks that can get you stuck during your writing process. Our goal is to help you finish your book or manuscript! Weekly we will explore craft with topics to include point of view, dialogue, themes and plot, character arcs, and sustaining tension. Each student will have time to present to the workshop, describe where you are at, and where you want to be when finished. Whether you are writing a novel, a memoir, or a collection of short stories, we’ll help you strategize and structure your manuscript. You will receive feedback from students and the instructor in a supportive workshop setting. This class offers you the opportunity to take your writing to the next level ... get much closer to a full draft ... and ready it to present to agents and publishers.
