Being a writer takes COMMITMENT & CONFIDENCE.

But first you need to figure out how to get out of your own way when it comes to turning nuggets into ideas, and ideas into written works. That’s where FoxTale’s wildly popular CREATIVE WRITING BOOT CAMP comes in. Using thought-provoking prompts, tips and tricks from the masters of the craft (Stephen King, Amy Tan, Natalie Goldberg, Elizabeth Berg & more), you’ll learn how to turn up the heat on your writing projects.

Just $60… Space is limited. Call 770-516-9989.
