When Jim first came to us, he had a concept for a book that had been on his heart for while. Trouble was: he wasn’t sure if it was a novel, a memoir, or non-fiction. We sorted through his ideas, settled on a topic, and outline, and Annalisa worked with Jim to hone his research, and organize his ideas. Jim’s was a timely topic that he wanted to get into the world quickly–and quickly he did. In less than 12 months from completing his writing and revision work in the Writing Gym, Jim had his traditionally published book in hand.
