This course is for people who have taken a previous session of Write Your Life, or who have taken at least one writing class, and wish to develop their memoir, novel, or stories for publication. Focus will be on technique and development of whatever it is you are working on. You do not need to have a finished manuscript, but you need to have an idea of what it is you want to write about, and at least ten pages of a draft. This class will be interactive and supportive, stimulating and fun.
