No one finishes a novel or book without support and help along the way. Inspired by my incredible English teachers, critique partners, and mentors, I love to encourage, teach, and coach other writers.

CLASS FULL: 8-Week Novel Writing Class

Write (or Finish) That Book Already!

Have an idea or a manuscript that’s been crying out for you to write into a completed book? We’re taking advantage of national plotting month (October) and national novel-writing month (November) to dive deep into our novels and complete our manuscripts by the end of the 8 sessions. (No worries if you don’t finish, but we’re setting ambitious goals to push ourselves and learn as much as we can!)

October and November 2019
WHEN: Mondays 6:30pm-8:00pm* (Oct 7, 14, 21, 28; Nov 4, 18, 25; Dec 2)
WHERE: Mauldin Cultural Center – Greenville, South Carolina
COST: $185 for the program

NOTE: If the available dates and times do not work for you and you would like to join the waiting list, or if you are interested in a teen version or a more general creative writing class, email so that a future class can be scheduled to accommodate YOU!


Mondays (Oct-Nov ’19)

The class will be offered Monday evenings from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the Mauldin Cultural Center in Mauldin, SC. Please let me know if you need different timing.

Intensive Plotting

Plot your novel, get to know your characters, and build your world during the month of October. I will lead you through each process, so that you’re ready to write during the month of November.

Finish Your Novel

During the month of November, as part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), we will set goals to write at 50k words (yes, fifty thousand! We can do it!) to complete our novels.
