Who Is This Class For?
This class is designed specifically for writers at all skill levels who:
Are afraid to start writing anything, or are currently not writing at all
Are in the middle of projects but feel overwhelmed and despairing about how to finish them
Feel bored or disappointed with their writing
Overthink their creative ideas until they feel paralyzed and can’t move forward
Feel like their inner critic is a bully they can’t escape
Constantly judge themselves for not being “good enough” or “productive enough” as a writer
Feel like they are a failure as a writer
Who Is This Class NOT for?
This class is NOT for writers who:
Are primarily interested in learning about the business side of writing
Are under a time crunch to use their writing to bring in income right this second
Are looking for specific editing tips, revision strategies, or story structure strategies
Are mostly interested in information about publishing, marketing, and selling
I talk more in the video below about why I developed this course, what it covers, and what to expect from it:
How Does It Work?
Class is in session from 4:00 – 5:30 pm PST on Tues, May 11, Tues May 18, and Tues May 25 in May 2021. Classes are held over Zoom, with Lauren teaching for the first 45 minutes to an hour, and the remainder of the time used for Q&A.
Each class is recorded and made available within 24 hours for streaming. Class members have lifetime access to all class recordings.
Note: Participation is OPTIONAL. Class members are free to leave their camera off during class if that feels more comfortable.
Class members also have access to live, silent writing sessions, held Wed May 12, Wed May 19, and Wed May 26 from 10:30-11:30 am PST, also over Zoom.
Lauren will hold the space for writers to sit and write together virtually, and writers are welcome to come and go as they please. (Everyone’s microphone will be off, so no one will notice if you come late or leave early.) Lauren will start the hour of writing and call time at the end.
Note: Participation in the silent writing sessions is also OPTIONAL. You do not have to attend them if you can’t make them or are not interested. They will not be recorded.
A private Facebook group is available to all class members. The Facebook group will stay open and active even after class has officially ended, functioning as a supportive sounding board for all members who are interested in continuing relationships within the group.
