ATTENTION ASPIRING AUTHORS: Next school semester, I will be offering a Creative Writing Class specifically designed to equip aspiring authors with everything they need to start their journey as published novelists! I look forward to sharing everything I have learned in my 4 years as a published author and 2 years as a full-time writer and publisher.
This will be a 12-week class, January 23 – April 17, every Tuesday at 10am in Garner, NC, and will cost $200 per student. Space is limited to sign up before the holiday rush! Find out more information and sign-up here.
