We write first to figure out our own stories.
Then we write to cast those stories out into the current of the world.
Amy from Jack Walker Press and I are working together so my students submit stories to appear in an anthology on Friendship, and the publisher has extended the deadline for submissions to March 19th, partly because she doesn’t have enough of the quality of the pieces she’s seeking. That’s where you, as a preferred student of mine, come to help her… and you. If you can’t take this class, I still encourage you to submit.
I’m teaching a class to bring out our best friendship stories.
Following the class, I’ll have a private FB group and suggest you pair off with another student for gentle critiques and edits. I will offer a one sheet on self editing tips I use with every writer while editing.
CLASS DATE: FEBRUARY 29TH
SIGN UP BY: FEBRUARY 26TH
TIME: 10:30 A.M. PST
COST: If you take this with the next Archetype course, the cost is $25 with a coupon Code FRIENDSHIP at check out. $49 on its own.
This class is ONLY available to my students, and not writers who have not been in writing groups, so please don’t pass the class onto a friend if they haven’t written with us.
I’ve promised the publisher the best stories.
Amy loves writers who write to the edges of story, who “braid” into story, something all of you do so very well.
I hope you want to take the risk and have your beautiful stories seen and spend the time to be inside an anthology,
something you can share with your future publisher.
We will all write together – TWO THIRTEEN MINUTES WRITES – then we will break out into groups to share if more than ten people sign up.
After the class, we will edit together and support each other through Facebook and me sending you information on Self Editing to help you through the process.
I am also available for private sessions to help you with your final edit on Saturday mornings only, but I’m certain you can all work together toward publication and helping each other edit. This class will set up that opportunity for all of you.
