Online writing support

Writing a novel is challenging, and at times finding guidance along the way is exactly what a writer needs. Nothing to Novel provides coaching and customized support for each and every stage of the writing process. Whether it's getting started, finishing a rough draft, revising for submission, or querying agents, we've got you covered. 


Traditional courses

The University of Washington Professional & Continuing Education offers a Certificate in Writing for Children. Jolie teaches the three-quarter course, covering picture books to young adult novels. Students master the foundational elements of writing for children with the goal of revising and creating submittable work by the end of the course. 

If you are interested in writing or illustrating for children, the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators is an organization dedicated to exactly that.
