Adventures in Writing Nonfiction Online Writing Course

 You’re driven to tell your story. You know what you’re going to say and you know it’s going to make an impact on people’s lives.

But there’s a problem. You don’t know how to start. Or maybe you’ve started, but just can’t find the direction forward.

I get it. There are only so many hours in the day, and you don’t have time to waste going down the wrong path, writing in circles. You need the easiest way to find your voice and share it with the world.

Adventures in Writing Nonfiction is designed just for you, the determined writer. This course guides you through each step of the writing process, from first word to last. But even more than that, answering the keystone questions put you on the right path for finding readers once you’re done. You’ll discover the why, who, and what behind your book which makes it easier to write and easier to sell.

We’ll explore how to choose the best framework for your book to attract the perfect readers. We’ll brainstorm the content to include only the most important information. I'll show you how to organize the content for maximum flow and impact. Finally, you’ll learn how to polish and perfect your manuscript to create a book you are proud to bear your name.

Not only will you find step-by-step information in this course, but it will also give you the confidence and motivation to finish it. And once you do, that’s when the magic happens. You’ll discover the transformational power of writing your book.

Now, what this course isn’t. It isn’t a get-rich-quick course. It isn’t a write-it-in-a-weekend course. I’m not promising your book will be a bestseller (although it very well may be). And I’m definitely not promising your brain won’t hurt a little in the attempt.

I CAN promise, you'll be forever changed.
