An Overview of the Class

This six-week online class provides a dynamic and adaptable learning experience tailored to accommodate even the busiest of schedules. With no fixed class times, you can progress through weekly text-based modules at your own pace, dedicating 2-3 hours each week to cultivate your writing prowess.

Each week, you will delve into new subjects, exploring more intricate forms of creative writing. Through engaging exercises, you will enhance your fiction writing and broaden your storytelling toolkit.

What to Anticipate Week by Week:

Week One – Flash Fiction
This week, we’ll focus on how to tell a complete story in 1,000 words or less that hinges on an important moment of truth.
Week Two – 10 Years Later
Stories are non-linear, especially with the advent of prequels and sequels. We’ll look at ways to unpack a story so that everything that comes before and after can be mined for new, rich stories that work in harmony with the source material.
Week Three – Style/Genre
This week looks at diving into the different styles and genres of fiction and challenges the students to write outside of their stylistic comfort zone.
Week Four – Point of View
The way that a character interacts with their world inside the story is (and should be) very telling. It’s also very specific. This week looks at creative approaches to a character’s Point of View.
Week Five – A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words
As writers, we constantly pull inspiration from the world around us. But how do we capture a feeling? A thought? A dream? This week focuses on using a visual prompt to inspire original stories. 
Week Six – I Can Do It Better
With a deep understanding of how stories function, we dive into established works that left us wanting perhaps a bit more. This week, you get the chance to outline and rework an existing story/movie/TV show to give it either a more satisfying finale, or a chance for a sequel.
