Fall 2021 Classes


Class Description



Online classes will be conducted via Zoom. If you do not have a Zoom account yet, simply go to Zoom and register for a basic (FREE) account. Please note that you DO NOT have to pay for the ability to join a Zoom meeting. 

Please remember that you must have signed up for the Zoom account BEFORE you can join a class. If you've never used Zoom before, their website offers a free, easy video tutorial, and the ability to test your sound and video in advance.

Once you are registered, the instructor will email you the handout for the class and the Zoom invitation (the link to the meeting) the night before the class.  

6:30-8:30pm (EST)


In 2017 Word's Worth launched its inaugural Writer's 12-Step Program: Write Your Novel Draft in a Year, and our fifth offering begins in September 2021. In this class a community of writers all endeavor to complete the first draft of a novel in one year's time. If you've ever tried National Novel Writing Month, this is the same idea, but this plan is a little more sustainable and doable with the rest of your life's obligations.

This community meets together virtually on the second Tuesday of each month from September 2021 to August 2022. In between sessions you'll generate new work, meet with break out "writing groups (virtually or in person)," and be connected to a private internet group where you'll receive a weekly "check-in" with instructor Katrina Kittle as well as receive motivational and accountability posts along the way. Instead of simply saying, "By this time next year I'll have my book done," this program will give you a game plan, frequent deadlines, check points, craft lessons, and the collective creative energy of other kindred spirits attempting the same goal. This program is for any FICTION writer ready to truly commit to their work.

Any genre of fiction is welcome. Memoir writers seeking this kind of community and accountability are welcome, but please understand that the instructional focus will be on the craft of fiction (but creative nonfiction writers use these same techniques) Each month will have a focus (although material will change based on the individual needs of group members). (Suggested ages 18 and up)
