To register, call the SWW Office (505-830-6034) or sign up at a monthly meeting. Do you have a story waiting to be written? What’s stopping you from sharing that story with the world, your friends, your family? During this beginner course, attendees will see writing a book as a realistic goal and start the process of getting their story on paper. We will discuss tools to use immediately to get the first draft written and will set individual writing goals to keep students on track to that completed draft. The class will also focus on story, characters, plot, point of view, beginnings, middles, chapter and story endings, and page stoppers. As time allows we can discuss agents, editors, query letters, book proposals, traditional publishing houses, supported self-publishing, and new technology such as Kindles and ePublishing. Join us and take the next step, or the first step, towards getting your story told.
