Get Writing! Mechanics, Techniques, and Inspiration
Instructor: Melissa L. Weber

Join Melissa L. Weber for the writer’s trifecta: The Best Grammar Refresher (Or, “I can’t remember indirect objects, but this sentence just doesn’t sound right”), a review of literary techniques (remember alliteration?), and motivational tips (find the time and the energy to put words on paper—or fingers to keyboard). Plus, she will provide an annotated “best reading about writing and creativity” book list.
