Get Me Started – Writing a Book
Saturday, September 7th, 10:30-1:30pm
Instructor: Cynthia Morris
You know that book idea that’s been simmering in the back of your mind forever? It’s time to bring it off the back burner and into your life now! Local author, artist, and writer’s coach Cynthia Morris can get you started. She’ll help you clarify your book’s focus, define the target readers, develop simple practices to get into the writing groove, and identify strategies to write even when there doesn’t seem to be time. From the many workshops she’s taught and the coaching she’s done with a variety of authors over the last twenty years, Cynthia knows there are women out there with powerful stories to tell. Her mission is to inspire and empower them to share their wisdom. Getting their books out provides a path to the kind of change needed in the world, and she views helping them as her contribution to peace and healing. You’ll leave her class with a 30-day, quick start plan and practices that will get you started – and keep you writing! The class is geared toward non-fiction books, but fiction writers can benefit too. Cynthia has written and published both. Get ready to get your book out of your head and onto the page!

Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
Cynthia Morris, a published author and creativity coach, has been keeping written journals since 1994 and started filling them with colorful illustrations in 2004. She has written two e-books on how anyone can use art-making techniques to enjoy life more. Her mission? To help people have more fun and feel more creative. When Cynthia’s not in her Denver office, she’s riding her bicycle, practicing yoga, frolicking in the park, whipping up a feast in the kitchen, snuggled up reading a book, or popping over to Europe. Through her company Original Impulse, Cynthia leads creativity workshops in Europe like the one she teaches at Two Hands Paperie. She finds that keeping an illustrated journal makes her happy.
