In this intensive, interactive, all-new workshop you will get the tools to start and organize your personal story. Learn how to:

  1. Determine why it must be you to write this book?
  2. What's the point of the story?
  3. Write book jacket copy.
  4. The best way to outline your story.
  5. Write a killer first sentence.
  6. Choosing a title.
  7. When to end the story if you are still living.

This workshop--incorporating Women Writing for (a) Change circle practices--is filled with hands-on tools to give the writer confidence to write from first-hand experience. Bring your work and try on these tools to make your powerful story all that it can be for whatever audience you desire, be it a broad public group or your immediate family. The content is identical to the class that was held in March.

**Please note that this class will be held using Zoom online conferencing. Your facilitator will provide specific details regarding this online community prior to the class.**
