$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

Writing a full-length book about yourself is a thrilling, empowering, ideal experience; it’s also horrifying, humbling, and impossible. In this seminar, we’ll talk about how this writer did it and how you can, too, from recyclable drafts to proposal to publication. How does a tragedy make you laugh while ripping you apart? We’ll discuss insights, secrets, and instructions on the "rule of three." We’ll examine notebooks and rejections, research, and revision strategies. We’ll brainstorm, weigh pros/cons of panicking, and discuss how to keep going during the “I quit” episodes of a years-long process.
