Mission (im)Possible Writing Course Challenges Students to Write a Book


Award-Winning Author Jaimie M. Engle teaches from idea through publication at Eastern Florida State College

“My books are meant to inspire, empower, and entertain the next generation of leaders.” author, Jaimie M. Engle
How do you write a book? Where do you even begin? Award-winning local author Jaimie M. Engle will spend eight months on the Eastern Florida State College Melbourne Campus teaching students and faculty the process of writing.

“My plan is to get students thinking about not just an idea they love, but one they can develop into an entire book and spend eight months completing,” says Engle, whose children’s book was recently awarded an indie B.R.A.G. Medallion of Excellence.

The course beginning on Tuesday, August 25th and repeating on Wednesday, August 26th will run the last Tuesday and Wednesday during the months of August, September, October, November (the week before Thanksgiving), January, February, March, and April from 9:30am to 10:30am with an encore from 11am-12pm. Courses includes:

o       Intro to Writing
o       Writing and Publishing
o       Pre-Writing
o       NaNoWriMo
o       Revise and Edit
o       Agents and Publishers
o       Selling and Marketing
o       While You Wait

I'm excited about the potential of students writing and publishing a novel through the Mission (im)Possible program,” says Danielle Redding, Director of Melbourne campus Student Life at Eastern Florida State College. “I think it’s a great idea and the students are excited to work with Jaimie again.”

The free 8-month long program is open to the public and held in the college writing center at 3865 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne, Fl  32935. Engle will have her books on hand for purchase. Freebies for all participants. Pre-register at redding@easternflorida.edu. Engle is available for interviews and welcomes the press to attend this event.
