Accountability Club Deluxe

Begins Monday, September 15, 2014

Join the club this fall!

Need someone to hold you accountable for your writing?

Accountability Club Deluxe isn’t a workshop and it isn’t a class. It’s a cross between a support group and a study hall, where fellow writers will help you to increase your productivity and actually write. 

At our weekly meetings, we’ll spend a half hour checking in and setting our goals for the night, and then spend two 40-minute sessions JUST WRITING. Afterward, we’ll share our successes and finish with a brief, guided writing exercise.

A great way to get some work done and rack up those pages!

What you’ll learn:

  • Strategies for setting goals, reaching them, and staying motivated
  • Weekly mini-exercises on elements of craft

What you’ll write:

  • Two 40-minute sessions to make progress on whatever writing project the student chooses

What you’ll read:

  • The option to share brief pieces of work at the end of each session

Who should attend?

  • Adults 18 and over
  • All writers
