This class is a part of the Writer's Toolbox Class Package.

It’s hard to stick to our path, especially when everything seems like it is going against us, but don't let that stop you from reaching your goals.

Join award-winning author P. J. Hoover in this inspiring workshop that will offer solid strategies on time management, goal setting, and staying the course even when things get tough. Come prepared to change the way you think about your writing. You'll walk away with a definitive list of ideas and a plan to act upon to help create the future you want. Bring questions. Bring ideas to share.

TAKE THIS CLASS IF

  • You're discouraged by rejections. 
  • You are published or unpublished. 
  • You're feeling overwhelmed. 
  • You need a kick in the butt to get you back on the right path again.

HOW WLT CLASSES WORK:

Our classes offer a combination of lecture and practical exercises, determined by the individual instructor, on focused aspects of the craft and business of writing. Your fellow participants will come from a range of writing experience, from beginners to people with MFA degrees and published books. WLT instructors, participants, and administrators all work together to create a welcoming, supportive environment.

If you haven't taken a class with us in recent years, feel free to give us a call at 512-499-8914 if you'd like to discuss whether our programming is the right fit for your needs.

 

HOW ONLINE CLASSES WORK:

Once you register for the class, you'll receive an email with detailed instructions. You should expect 2-2.5 hours of direct teaching and 30 minutes of Q&A (for three hours total). If you need to leave the class early or can't attend the class on that date, all registrants will have access to the recording for one week after the class date. No microphone or camera required, just an Internet connection capable of streaming video.


A couple of days before the class, you will receive an email with login information. Plan to log in to the online platform several hours before the class so that you can update your computer's Flash or any other settings required to access the platform. (Updates usually take only a few minutes, but you don't want to wait until the beginning of class.) Questions? Email us at member@writersleague.org or call at 512-499-8914.
