It can be any form of writing as long as it represents who you are as a writer.  It's not about perfection or pristine grammer - it's about the heart of the work.

What can you expect?

After eight weeks, you should have solved some problems and created others; that's the definition of writing. But in a safe room with specific goals each week, you'll see that your work will grow.
