I think most writers are familiar with the fantasy of living in some lakeside chalet penning their novel at a frustrated but ultimately rewarding pace while drinking coffee and wearing ultra-soft jersey knits. The reality of being a writer is very different for most people and it certainly was/is for me.
After receiving roughly a baker's dozen emails each fortnight from emerging or writers trying to break into the industry, I realized a need for the kind of strategy-oriented curriculum that typical writing classes covering craft don't teach.
I have started teaching these classes to address a lot of the practical issues faced by writers: making an actual living, coming up with good ideas regularly, and having a strategy in place for growing and sustaining a solid writing career.
