Yearlong Novel Workshop Accepting Students

If you're looking to work on a full novel in a workshop format, this might be the class for you:

Write Your Book Workshop --

This very special year-long workshop allows you to workshop your novel or memoir in progress in 30 pages "chunks" over about 28+ sessions from September 24, 2012 until July 22, 2013.  Each session involves a writing exercise, instruction on an aspect of writing, and 30-40 minute "workshop" on each "chunk."  The goal is to have each participant workshop 7+ "chunks" over the year in the hopes of completing a draft manuscript.  Meeting on Mondays 7:30-10pm in Falls Church City. there are 3 week breaks before Winter, Spring and Summer sessions.  There is ample parking and it is public transit accessible.
