"FanStory sponsored a contest to write a novel in two months. I completed it February 29 of this year.

Last night I signed a contract with a publisher.

Thanks so much to the people who read "Melinda Heads West" and helped me by reviewing and sending tips my way. I'm over the moon! I've said this before, I'm saying it again.... I LOVE FANSTORY! Thanks for all you do!"

Robyn Corum

"I heartily nominate FanStory as the most helpful website I have ever come across that truly delivers what it promises. Not only is it a forum in which your poetry, stories and essays are reviewed by other aspiring writers (I had 110 reviews of my latest poem!), but I've been able to develop my critical skills by reviewing other members' works, as well. There are contests galore to enter, daily, with generous payouts ... and ... well, I see no reason to go anywhere else!"

Jay Squires

"Without FanStory I simply would not be a writer at all. The feedback and friendships I have made here have changed my entire life.

Honest feedback helped prepare me for the real world. The contests have also helped me, and continue to help me. Writing to a topic, and writing to a deadline, is key. There isn't a more valuable skill than to sit down and write about a subject by a specific date. That's the real world."

Jen Horton, columnist.
Winner of five individual journalism awards, including two best-in-state. Humor Column and education rewards. Two awards for feature writing and in-depth reporting.

Writing Classes

Novel Endings
In this class, students will learn how to write a satisfying novel ending that addresses the story problem but avoids being too pat. Students will continue their work from earlier courses by studying the end of "The Great Gatsby" and working through exercises toward completing their own novels.
Class Begins: October 6th

Grammar Tips (SPAG)
This is your chance to conquer the dreaded comma, unlock the mysteries of the apostrophe and figure out once and for all when to use "lie" instead of "lay." Every discussion will feature easy-to-follow examples, and assignments will provide a chance to practice and receive individual feedback.
Class Begins: October 13th

Children's Poetry

Whether you want to write for your own children and grandchildren or break into the children's market, this course will allow you to explore how to instill in children a love for poetry.
Class Begins: October 13th

Poetry Tutorial
This is your chance to explore whatever poetic forms you have a desire to learn about and experiment with. You can sign up as an individual for a directed study, or you can find a couple of friends to sign up with you as a study group. If you want to study syllable count forms like the nonet or if you want to work with more advanced poetic forms like the rondeau redouble, you name it and we'll work on it together. What I don't know I will research.
Class Begins: October 14th
