WRITING FROM YOUR HEART: Getting Started with Your Writing Project with Diane Cameron

You have promised to start that writing project--an essay, a story, book or memoir. Maybe to publish or a gift for your family. It's true--the hardest part is starting.

Join author and columnist Diane Cameron Sunday September 29th to learn--and practice--strategies to begin and continue writing. We'll learn and laugh and we'll have fun. And we'll write!
