Re-Writing With Class

This series of classes and workshops takes real-life writing samples and applies different rewriting tools to them. Then everyone practices using the tools to rewrite something on their own. Bring your own work or I'll have writing samples for you to work with.
Need more attention to help you go through any of the steps in the writing process? You may want to try some one-on-one coaching sessions. These are custom-tailored to your specific needs.
