Have you wanted to start writing but are unsure how to begin? Do you want to write the story of your life or your family’s for possible publication or private documentation? Do you have a great idea for a novel, script, blog, or column?
Many people aspire to write but can’t get started. This frustration often results in the aspiration disappearing. Don’t let that happen.
Join Matt to experiment with innovative techniques to define an editorial voice for fiction or nonfiction writing and address the barriers that prevent you from starting.
Get the writing going! All you have to do is start. Here’s how.
The workshop runs 10 am to 3:30 pm on Saturday, March 5, 2016. Tuition is $50. Click here to register.
