Why You Should Take This Class: Everyone has a unique story waiting to be unearthed. Like diamonds under a bedrock, you need the right tools in order to extract and polish them. Join Christina Chiu for a 90-minute workshop that will guide entrepreneurs, writers, professionals, and everyone in-between through a metaphorical mining excursion to discover their unique story. Participate in various writing exercises, receive helpful feedback, and synthesize the “gems” of your discoveries into something much more.

Class Description: In this workshop, we will discuss how to craft a manuscript for publication, how to pitch your work to agents and editors, and how to maintain writing momentum on your own and overcoming writers’ block.
