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. Evening activities include creating an image board for your book, sharing sessions with helpful feedback, and freewriting from prompts.
This is a great way to really solidify your writing practice and make strong progress on your book! To make the most of your week, please plan to stay at the Ranch and enjoy our community meals, desert hikes, and more.
“I set and achieved goals, applied the concepts from the week before and watched it raise the quality and quantity of my output. It was a leap ahead that provided direction and momentum that endures. Every writer’s dream!
I loved it! It allowed me to achieve a depth of understanding and productivity that would not have been possible otherwise.”
– Mary Kipp, MISA Alum
