AVAILABLE CLASSES

Writing Short Nonfiction

Many writers turn to more "creative" genres when they begin writing, such as poetry, short stories, and the novel. However, it is nonfiction, such as articles, feature stories, and interviews, that will sell while that completed novel languishes unread ono the writer's desktop. In addition, nonfiction writers don't need agent representation while still using much of the same writing skills and creativity as a fiction writer.
Starts: In 3 Days
Seats Left: 7 seats.

Writing Backstory

Many stories bog down in the characters' pasts and spend more time in the past than moving the current story forward. On the other hand, sometimes not enough backstory is included, and the reader know little about how the characters got to where they are. In this class, learn what elements of backstory, those details of the main characters' past related to the current story, are relevant and important to include and what to leave out. Other topics discussed are at what point in time to begin the story, where and how much backstory should be included, and strategies for writing backstory. Each week will be centered on model readings, writing assignments, and live chats related to both the reading and writing.
Starts: April 6th
Seats Left: 7 seats.
