(in lieu of regular meeting)

First Evangelical Free Church Colorado Springs, CO

Has your novel ever hit a wall? Maybe you’ve lost momentum and interest in a story you were once passionate about. Or maybe the tale is finished but anxiety keeps you from shopping your manuscript. Learn how to clear the hurdles that trip every novelist from time to time. Writer’s block, self-doubt, story snags, and feeling uninspired shouldn’t prevent you from completing your novel. Nor should past failures keep you away from your writer’s pen. Not only will you gain the confidence you need to finish well, this seminar will give you additional tools to polish your work for submission to agents and publishers, whether you’re revising alone or with the help of others.
