Helping Writers to Rise and Thrive

Nanowrimo Boot Camp

Saturdays, 9:30-11:30, Begins Oct date tbc
Seven weeks, $295

Whether you’re gearing up for National Novel Writers Month in November or simply hoping to map out your novel, this seven-week workshop is for you.

Nationally known editor Kimberly A. Caldwell helps you nail down your premise, work out the plot and subplots, discover your themes and compile a list of scenes that will carry your first draft. If you are a “seat-of-the-pants” writer, you’ll be astounded by how having this list will free you to write. Those who already outline will add layers and nuance to their work.

Bring your story ideas—or the novel-in-progress that you’re working or struggling with. The seven Saturday sessions will be collaborative, insightful and instructive, and you’ll be ready to fire on all cylinders come November 1.

Kimberly has edited more than 200 novels and memoirs for authors and publishers—traditional publishers as well as a behemoth publishing platform that shall not be named due to fine print in the contract. Learn more about her here.
