Calendar runs for 52 weeks

If you've always wanted to write but have no idea where to start, this course will demystify the process for you. You'll get a taste of the writing life, improve your writing skills, and develop new ways to stretch your creative muscles. This exciting, hands-on course for the creative writing novice is filled with challenging exercises, expert advice, and plenty of direct support and encouragement. As you work your way through the lessons, you'll develop your own short, creative fiction or nonfiction piece. Our emphasis in this course is on developing your skills through practice, so you'll spend more time writing than reading. You'll master important concepts by completing enjoyable writing exercises and assignments, and you'll discover a variety of strategies and techniques the pros use to develop characters, create a compelling point of view, build interest through dialogue, and add meaning to your stories.

The 4-session hoMEworks homebuyer education classes provide an opportunity to learn about the home buying process in a neutral environment.

Education gives buyers the tools they need to avoid predatory lending and possible foreclosure.

Heather currently works with clients who are facing foreclosure, teaches homebuyer education classes and works one-on-one with pre-purchase clients helping them become credit-ready to purchase a home.
