Roughing It: A Draft of Your Book in Just 6 Weeks [Rebecca Agiewich]
As Anne Lamott says in Bird by Bird, even the most successful authors write crappy first drafts. So why not write it fast and get it over with? In this class, you’ll write a complete first draft of a novel or memoir. We’ll alternate lessons in story structure, character, and in-class writing exercises. The class is geared toward beginning fiction writers, but memoirists and writers of all levels are welcome. Individual conference with teacher included. Required text: Writing for Story by Jon Franklin.
