Writing Classes

Plotting the Plot
Often novice writers feel comfortable with developing three-dimensonal, believable characters. But what good are these characters if we don't see them in action? Action is a matter of plot, which many writers feel less comfortable with. We'll develop our understanding of plot and write one story for the class, with a focus on plot.
Class Begins: In 3 Days

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: January 5th

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: January 5th

Rhyme and Meter in Poetry
If you are interested in writing metered, rhyming poetry that sounds natural and engages your reader, this class will provide all the basics. You will also learn to use several poetic devices such as metaphors and similes. Assignments will give you hands on experience with composing your own poetry in a step by step process, and you will receive personalized help along the way. You will also have the chance to discuss this process with the instructor and other students in group chats.
