Write Your First Book

This course will help both beginning authors and those who need a nudge with a book underway. Rather than focus on how to write a specific genre (memoir, non-fiction or fiction), the course will include: how to know a good book idea when you meet one, deciding how to tell your story, plotting an arc, the importance of re-writing, and weekly exercises to get you writing and keep writing. Also, insider information on both traditional publishing and self-publishing and how to get an agent (and if you need one) will be covered. Taught by New York Times bestselling true crime author and veteran journalist, Rebecca Morris.

Rebecca quickly created an open, engaging and supportive atmosphere, which was very important in a class with only 4 sessions. Each lesson/assignment was specific and progressive. There was also a good balance between instruction and open discussion.
