Are you ready to make some progress on your manuscript this summer? In this class, you will be asked to write two scenes a week for four weeks. Class will include lecture, discussion, and workshops. We will do an in-depth study of what makes a scene sizzle, including discussion of the topics of internal and external conflict, dialogue, action, description, and more. This class can be taken individually, but would pair well with Map Out Your Memoir.
