Join author and teacher Kathy Mac online for seven weeks of advice and inspiration on writing effective creative prose
Some of what she says may be familiar, some of it may be new to you, and if you hang around long enough, probably some will scald your ears as you race to your keyboard to comment on just how wrongheaded it is.
The focus is on any sort of prose: fiction, short or long, creative nonfiction (memoir, travel-writing, long-form journalism). But much of what she covers are concerns and skills that transfer to other genres if, for example, you are more focused on scripts or poetry, especially narrative poetry.
