THE WRITER'S 12-STEP PROGRAM: WRITE YOUR NOVEL IN A YEAR--Instructor: Katrina Kittle
In 2017 Word’s Worth launched its inaugural Writer’s
12-Step Program: Write Your Novel Draft in a Year, and our third class began in September 2019. 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 on the second Tuesday of each month from September 2019 to August 2020. In between sessions
you’ll generate new work, meet with break out “writing groups,” and be connected to a private internet group
where you’ll receive a monthly “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)
