This 12-week course is designed to help you navigate through the emotional waters of starting and finishing the book you've always wanted to write! Each week we will have a lesson and discussion on the different elements of putting a book together, AFT sessions centered around those topics and homework sessions that will keep you focused on and engaged in your incredible journey to finishing your book.

General Topics will include getting clear on Why you want to write, committing to the writing process, strategies for getting your content on paper (or digitally):

Why Do You Want to Write? - What makes you feel the need to share your words with the world?

Commitment - Strategies for allowing yourself to pursue this endeavor that may at sometimes feel meaningless and/or daunting

What Do You Want to Write? - Discussion on finding the genre that is best suited to your personality and message.

We will also be working with individual issues that come up for participants during the course process. The course will be VERY experiential, and those who get the most out of the course will be the ones who have put the most in to it. This means doing the writing assignments as well as tackling the emotional issues and blocks that come up during the course. Fortunately, with AFT we have a simple and effective means of turning these negative thoughts into positive inspiration!
