Courage and Craft: Writing Your Life into Story

Have you always wanted to write about your life but wondered how to get started, how to keep going, and whether it’s even worth it in the first place?

Under the guidance of veteran author and writing teacher Barbara Abercrombie, you’ll learn how to turn the messy, crazy, sad, and wonderful stuff of your life into prose or poetry that has order, clarity, and meaning. Abercrombie presents the nuts and bolts of several genres, showing you how to keep a journal, craft a personal essay, or write a memoir, autobiography, poem, or work of fiction. She offers lessons to embolden you as a writer and practical guidelines for working writing into your everyday life, giving and receiving feedback, and getting your work published.

In Courage & Craft, you’ll find exercises to keep the inner critic at bay, inspiration from writers who’ve been there, and proven advice for getting your words on the page and out into the world.
