Is it your dream to write the great American novel or a best-selling memoir? In this 7 week Los Angeles intro book writing class, successful novelist and bestselling memoirist Brett Paesel will teach you the fundamentals of writing a page turner, whether it is fiction or non-fiction! She’ll also teach you techniques for creating a thrilling story arc, irresistible dialogue, characters and conflict. If you like, you can even bring in up to 1200 words of your novel or memoir for targeted feedback every other session!

With the aid of fun, hands-on exercises and balanced workshopping sessions, you’ll have completed a chapter outline of your book, and will have written some scenes to boot.
