Every year presents people with a set of new resolutions. Is one of yours to write a novel? Do you have an idea for a story? Have you been visualizing the story and can literally see and hear your characters? Are you unsure where to go now that you have this idea? Because of this seemingly Herculean task, would-be writers put their literary dreams on the backburner, promising to return to them once they have time. Well, guess what? Things will always arise that will keep you from pursuing your dreams. Because of this, the time is NOW, and the literary dream you hold onto can be envisioned within four weeks with WRITERS BOOT CAMP.

What is Writers Boot Camp?

It’s a four-week, intensive program in which you’ll work one-on-one with author, editor, educator, everywoman Shōn Bacon to develop your story idea into an outline and get you geared up to finally sit and WRITE.

What does Writers Boot Camp entail?

*Four weekly exercises on topics such as story description, plotting, scene visualization, and scene outlining; each exercise will be read and critiqued by Shōn.

*Opportunity to talk with Shōn via e-mail or Yahoo IM to discuss assignments and strategy for story development.

*A bonus fifth week in which you, with Shōn’s assistance, will plan your writing in order to finally get a FIRST DRAFT COMPLETED!
