Following the amazing experience at the Johnson County, Kansas Public Library in 2023, I have been working on a new writing class which will launch in September of 2024.

Watch this page for DOWNLOADABLE LESSONS from The Missouri Mugwump(tm).

Beginning after Labor Day in 2024, you will be able to download writing prompts, idea pages, inspirational essays, and reading recommendations.  As always, writing will begin with my firm and perhaps old-fashioned belief that if you purchase, read, and use the current copy of The Elements of Style by Strunk and White, your writing will exponentially improve.  You will learn the rules and learn when to sparingly break the rules.

My personal style began with “the little book” and evolved over the last six decades.  But I keep a copy at hand to check myself.  Clear, sharp writing leads to more certain communication, the writer’s goal.

I will announce the launch of the lessons here and give guidance on how you can obtain a subscription.  Sharpen your pencils and fill those fountain pens.  We’re going to WRITE OUTLOUD.

IN THE MEANTIME:  Here is a free, downloadable exercise to kickstart your journey.
