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 the second class began last September. 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 on the second Tuesday of each month from September 2018 to August 2019. In between sessions you’ll generate new work, meet with break out “writing groups,” and be connected to a private internet group where you’ll receive a monthly “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).

 

Our second trimester's focus will be:

WRITER'S WORKSHOP--Instructor: Christina Consolino

 
Have you finished some writing and feel ready for feedback? Join author Christina Consolino and other writers in a supportive and constructive environment designed to help you take your writing through the revision process. Participants are asked to have some completed work ready to exchange with others. These can be short stories or novel or memoir chapters. Your entire work does not need to be finished! Christina will train participants in how to discuss and give feedback, and will lead participants in workshopping each others’ writing. This class is limited to only 6 so that each participant has an opportunity to receive feedback on up to 20 pages of writing twice (that feedback will include thorough, written notes from Christina and from the other workshop members, as well as an in-depth, supportive discussion).
