Finishing Your Book Online

All Levels | This is a class for anyone struggling with a book. Although that first sprint of 50 pages into a book—either novel or nonfiction—can be very exhilarating, it’s hard to sustain until the end. Sooner or later, you’re likely to find yourself in a creative ditch, wheels spinning. We’ll take a look at when to revise and when not to revise; what questions are productive, and what questions are counter-productive. We’ll seek out ways to re-invigorate ourselves for much more writing. The final class will be a tutorial of the business of finding an agent and/or publisher for your book.
This class takes place online via our partner, WetInk, and can be completed at your own pace each week.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
