Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Do you have a book in you?
Are you ready to get started or develop a book length project already underway?

Join us for an intensive six week workshop designed to help you bring that book to life. We will be looking at some good books, brushing up on essential craft elements, and discussing strategies to get writing and keep going. Beginning with a brief talk on structure, outlining, voice, character, plot, editing and other essentials, meetings will include group discussions and supportive feedback from the instructor and fellow writers.

This course is designed for projects in fiction, memoir, or non fiction at any phase of development. Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a writer; the only thing you need is the intention to write a book and a willingness to support other writers in a positive, inclusive spirit. The only difference between a writer and everyone else is the act of writing.

WHEN: Thursday Nights, 7-9pm -- Oct 19th to Nov 30th (skips Nov 23rd) -- 6 weeks
WHERE: Gunn High School Campus, 780 Arastradero Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94306
