A summertime tradition! Write Your Novel in a Month class!

* Do you have an idea for a novel?
* Do you want to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo, but want to do it with the support of a (for-credit) class?

Then the Novel in a Month Class is the class for you!

The class will be held at the old Independence Library at the following times:

Thursdays 7:00 to 8:30 pm
June 26 through August 7

Registration Fee: $75 (includes required text)

If you are interested in this class, please go to http://www.ashcreekarts.org/#!classes/csc0

Class size is limited to 20. Early registration is recommended!

* Do you have a great idea for a book, but haven't gotten around to writing it?
* Perhaps you have no idea, but do possess a deep, burning desire to write.
* Maybe you are convinced you don't have time to write a novel.

Really, who has time?

Lots of people! Every November, hundreds of thousands of people participate in National Novel Writing Month by pledging to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days.

In fact, our instructor, Maren Bradley Anderson, has "won" NaNo for many years by writing over 50,000 words in thirty days.

Write Your First Novel In Thirty Days is a 7-week class aimed at people who want to write a novel by participating in the deadline-driven, community-supportive atmosphere. The class will focus on:

* preparation for writing a book-length first draft (including idea generation),
* completion of the book-in-a-month challenge,
* and end with a workshop on what to do with a freshly written novel.

The emphasis of this class is not quality, but quantity. Without a completed first draft, the writer cannot revise a better second or third draft. In this class you will get that elusive first draft.

You can write the first draft of a novel in just thirty days!

I hope to see you this summer, fellow writers.
