EMBRACE YOUR LITERARY MAMA--Instructor: Christina Consolino

The online magazine Literary Mama was founded to give mothers a voice. The journal celebrates "the physical, psychological, intellectual, and spiritual processes of becoming a mother through words and images that may be so stark it hurts." Finding that voice and the time to write, however, is a struggle that all mothers (and parents and caregivers) experience. Join one of the senior editors of Literary Mama, Christina Consolino, as she helps you piece together your unique story, whether that be an ode to the nurse who helped you through a natural delivery, a creative nonfiction piece that celebrates your neurodiverse child's talents, or a literary reflection essay on how your mother's group helped you realize your writing dream. You need not have a work-in-progress for this class! Only enthusiasm and the drive to hone your creativity.

THE WRITER'S 12-STEP PROGRAM: WRITE YOUR NOVEL IN A YEAR--Instructor: Katrina Kittle

 
In 2017 Word's Worth launched its inaugural Writer's 12-Step Program: Write Your Novel Draft in a Year, and our fourth offering begins in
September 2020. In this class a community of writers all endeavor to complete the first draft of a novel in one year's time. If you've ever tried
National Novel Writing Month, this is the same idea, but this plan is a little more sustainable and doable with the rest of your life's obligations.

This community meets together virtually on the second Tuesday of each month from September 2020 to August 2021. In between sessions
you'll generate new work, meet with break out "writing groups (virtually or in person)," and be connected to a private internet group where you'll
receive a weekly "check-in" with instructor Katrina Kittle as well as receive motivational and accountability posts along the way. Instead of simply
saying, "By this time next year I'll have my book done," this program will give you a game plan, frequent deadlines, check points, craft lessons, and
the collective creative energy of other kindred spirits attempting the same goal. This program is for any FICTION writer ready to truly commit to their
work.

Any genre of fiction is welcome. Memoir writers seeking this kind of community and accountability are welcome, but please understand that the instructional
focus will be on the craft of fiction (but creative nonfiction writers use these same techniques) Each month will have a focus (although material will change based
on the individual needs of group members). (Suggested ages 18 and up)
