It was all going really well: you had a great book idea and a lot of passion, and you've been beavering away writing. But all that energy has drained away and you're left with a mess of notes, a bunch of chapters that don't hang together--and the nagging feeling that you may not even know what your book is really about. How are you ever going to get this published? This session will show you how to get back control of your project by sharing six important strategies to help you clarify your goals, content and process. It is suitable for all nonfiction including memoir.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class.
