Get Started Writing Your Book

April 15, 8:00pm - 9:30pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom

About this FieldTrip

Everyone has a story to tell, but few know where to start it. That’s where I come in! Join Tia to kick start writing your personal story (aka the book of your dreams).

During the class, you’ll learn a bit about memoir and personal essay (for short story chapter books) so you can better narrow down the idea for your book. Then we’ll go through a guided exercise where we brainstorm the pivotal moments of your life and create a list of these events. Working together, we will organize that list which will become the basis of the outline for your book.

The last part of our time together will be set aside for writing using prompts. So, you will leave class with draft one of a book outline and a short story toward the completion of your novel.

No prior writing experience is needed, so all levels of writers are welcome and encouraged.

About the Host

She has also been working as a Book Writing Coach in both memoir and children’s picture books for the past three years.

Tia asked to host this class because it’s her joy to get people’s stories out into the world and help them overcome the fears/blocks that come up with writing. Besides, 80% of people say they want to write a book while only 20% become authors and she’d like to see that number change.
