Foundational Material

This section includes foundational material that will help you get prepared for the upcoming course.

DIY MFA Starter Kit

You may already be familiar with this worksheet because it’s the Starter Kit that you receive when you sign up for the DIY MFA general mailing list. We’ve included it here in case you wanted a new copy. This starter kit is a great way to get familiar with the DIY MFA concept and to get a sense of the main topics and tools.

DIY MFA 101 Questionnaire

This is the questionnaire I use with my one-on-one mentoring clients before we begin to work together. I realized that this questionnaire can also be useful to help writers dig deep and better understand their own process, which is why I’ve included it as a bonus here.
