Don't think. Write.
Get your novel off the ground! Shane Kuhn, bestselling author of three Simon & Schuster novels - The Intern’s Handbook, Hostile Takeover, and most recently, The Asset - is offering a workshop on how to use the power of emotion and instinct to get your book project off the ground quickly and get it ready to sell. After a 4-hour course (with beer), you’ll walk away with a book concept and outline that will empower you to finally knock out the novel you’ve always wanted to write. More information. (Note: This class was orginally scheduled for September 4, 11, 18 & 25; it has been condensed into two classes on September 11 & 18)
