Becoming a mom changes everything; whether your children are toddlers or teens, they provide daily stories and deepen the emotional well from which we write. This ten-week workshop aimed specifically at moms explores how to incorporate our own lives into fiction and memoir we can sell, while moving beyond journaling. Examining everything from short-shorts to novel excerpts, we will mold our life material to write meaningful fiction. We will also discuss where to market your fiction. The workshop begins Jan. 27th and includes lectures, exercises, freewrites and critiques of your work. Sign up before Jan. 13th and pay $400. After that, sliding scale of $450-$550 for the ten weeks. Class size limited. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
