    Are you sitting at home, surrounded by your research, not sure how to make your story into something coherent, multi-layered and readable? Then please, please, please sign up for this course. It will teach you more than you ever thought you needed to know and you will never look back. Lynn will direct you through the process and give you feedback and encouragement. Six weeks ago all I had were random boxes of papers and a vague vision of a story, now I have a full plot outline and am ready to start writing in earnest. This course is invaluable!
