A big part of my life now is sharing my journey from one who suffers with bipolar to one who lives with bipolar. I’ve had to recreate and rebuild. I’ve been forced out of one career only to find the right career. It’s a journey and I like to encourage others to journey with me. If you would like me to be part of your community through a guest blog or an interview, contact me here.
My journey has guided me to pick up my pen and create fictional stories that touch hearts. I have spent thousands of hours learning and practicing and producing chapters that make even me shiver. If you want one-on-one support, education, and accountability to take your novel from idea to sentences to scenes to chapters to The End, I’m ready to be your coach, your guide and your task master. Stop talking about this great story idea. Write it.

The beauty of small group writing classes is the chance to learn, to practice and to receive feedback each and every week. My classes are limited to 6 students and all assignments force you to make forward progress on your project. Assignment is edited and critiqued to help you create drama with every word. Each class focuses on improving craft, so your readers want to turn the page. Is there conflict in your scene? Is it dramatic? Do you tell where you should show? Do you waste time on frivolous dialogue? Do you know your character better than you know yourself?
I've learned so much about writing from June in the small-group writing class I'm in. From plot to scene to conflict and character arc, she is great at presenting and then giving hands-on exercises to bring home the point. She is also honest at critiquing my writing, which is what any writer should want. It's not enough to just hear what is good about my writing. I need to hear where I am falling short. Just when I think she has taught me all the writing tools there are, June pulls out more from her tool box!
I am a certified writing class junkie who proudly displays certificates of completion by numerous teachers. These certificates hang above an impressive collection of books on how to write, when to write, and how to write better. If I had found June earlier, I could have saved a lot of money, time, and wall space. I studied writing in college, taught English for twenty-seven years, and have learned more from June than I did in any of my graduate courses. She is organized, knowledgeable, supportive, authentic, and totally enthusiastic. Take your vitamins before class. All the information she shares will make your head spin and your fingers eager to hit the keyboards. If you are an aspiring author, I would highly recommend treating yourself and your manuscript to June’s guidance. You will not be disappointed.
June’s knowledge and extraordinary ability to share it well is a gift to any aspiring writer, whether new to writing or wanting to expand one’s writing skills. I consider it to have been a very lucky day when I attended my first class with June. That luck continues with every class.
I've enjoyed and continue to learn multiple levels of fiction writing from June Converse. If you desire to write a great fictional book or struggling to put the jigsaw puzzle pieces together of fiction writing, June classes are structured to unravel fictional writing's mystique. Your writing skills take off on the first day of class through until the last day of class. Stop struggling to complete your book. Join June's class to embrace in-depth teaching and relevant resources to extend your understanding and depth of fiction writing. Since joining June's ranks, not only can I identify elements in the work of other writers, I am now adding the missing pieces to my writing, and it feels good, and writing strength is evolving with each class.
June’s energy and enthusiasm make her writing classes a joy. I am a novice writer, so I appreciated the prompting and gentle encouragement I received throughout. She is extraordinarily generous with her time and talents. June can write and teach and teach others to write!
