Writing that Book: An Introduction and Overview

If you’ve always wanted to write a book but don’t know where to start, or if you’ve started but don’t know what to do next, this two-part course is for you.  We’ll discuss basic information about the writing process and the publishing field: beginning a book, tips for continuing and finishing a manuscript, revising and trouble-shooting, how the publishing process works, what agents and editors do and how to connect with them, and the pros and cons of self-publishing.  There will be time for Q&A.  You’ll leave the class knowing how to get started on this journey and what steps to take next.  Bring a computer or a notebook to take notes.
