Ready to turn all those notes and fragments into something “real”? This class is for writers ready to explore, organize, and start to develop their fragments into a large writing project or book (novel, memoir, poem or essay collection, hybrid). Let's have 2023 be the year you get a complete draft done!

In this class, participants will begin to organize their stuff, their mindset, and their time. They will set realistic project goals for a clear map forward and know ways to address potential roadblocks along the way. Time to get on the road and get this done! Class will be a mix of practical discussion and helpful tips, Q&A, small group sessions, and in-class exercises designed to offer clarity, direction, and inspiration.

We'll explore how to manage overwhelm, learn how to build a sustainable writing routine and stay in action, and rein in our inner critics that hold us back. Led by a certified professional coach, participants will benefit from the instructor's training in the neuroscience of effective habit formation and productivity.

Bring your calendar! You'll leave with a clear map forward.

All classes listed on the Loft website take place in Central Standard Time (CST); make sure you understand your time zone, and adjust accordingly
