Plenty of desert quiet and private time to produce pages or revise, plus daily assignments and support from Mary. Includes optional craft classes on chapter arcs, transitions, theme, and more. End-of-week feedback on up to 30 pages of your manuscript.

Maximize your creative momentum with Independent Study! At the start of your IS week, Mary helps you plan a writing schedule, gives you specialized writing assignments for the week, and is available for daily email checkins and progress reports.

You also get her feedback on up to 30 double-spaced pages of your writing after your IS time, as well as the option to sit in on three craft workshops to hone your skills.
