COURSE DESCRIPTION: Are you writing a novel? Do you need a writing coach to keep you accountable and provide feedback as you go? Do you have an idea for a novel, memoir or autofiction, but you don't know how to plan or get started? Join me in an online workshop environment, where you can work with me to get a first or second draft of a novel completed. Novelists for almost any genre are welcome. (Please note: I am not an expert in children's writing. If you are writing a children's novel, I recommend you find an editor who has published children's books.) Depending on your needs, I will also help you with writing a synopsis and query letter.

I enjoyed Gila's class. She taught us about Autofiction, exposed us to different authors and types of writing and provided useful feedback about our own writing assignments. It was nice to "meet" people from other countries. I liked Gila and the class so much that I am planning to enroll in Part 2 of this class. ~ Phyl
Gila Green's course was concise with strong feedback from her on weekly homework assignments. Class participation and readings were focused and writing prompts on point. Would take another course with her anytime. ~Penina

"Thank you for this class and for your very valuable feedback on the two drafts I sent you. Your class rekindled the fire that I felt was beginning to fizzle out in my writing." ~ Clare Hart
"Thanks for a great class! I’m so glad I signed up—turns out that I still have a brain and you made me use it. :) I appreciate your advice as well as the thought-provoking lessons you provided . . . In that short amount of time I feel more confident going forward with my writing . . . I wish you the very best, and thank you again for sharing your knowledge! "~ Andrea H.
"Gila Green’s class was my first online writing class. I was impressed with the quality of the material Gila provided and her weekly lessons were clear and easy to understand. She also provided enough flexibility in her lessons to tailor the class to the individual needs of her students. I always felt open to ask questions or linger over lessons and critiques that I felt I needed more time to comprehend and work through. I look forward to learning from her again. "~ Donna Kortes
"Gila had a very straightforward way of explaining by giving examples in our own work, and pinpointing a subject for clarity. She was very encouraging and her critiques were always thoughtful and constructive. She pushed me to dig deeper and work harder and I believe it shows in my writing. If I am ever fortunate enough to make it in this business, I will definitely name Gila as one of the reasons for my success." ~ Barbara Florenza
