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.
Starts: October 6th
Seats Left: 7 seats.
Advanced Short Stories
In this class, students are invited to go beyond the basic elements of fiction writing to explore issues of voice, nontraditional plot structure, and unconventional points of view through reading exemplary stories and responding in their own writing. Each week there will be reading and writing assignments that will assist students toward completing at least one story draft by course end. In addition, the opportunity will be provided for students to read and respond to each other's work.
It will be helpful if students enter class with at least an idea for a story, but it's not necessary. We will review the basics of short story writing the first week, but students should be familiar from past class(es) with the basics of character, point of view (POV), plot elements, setting, and theme.

Starts: October 6th
Seats Left: 7 seats.
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.
Starts: October 13th
Seats Left: 9 seats.
Children's Poetry
Ask people to identify their favorite poems and many will name poetry they fell in love with as children.
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.
Starts: October 13th
Seats Left: 8 seats.
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.
Starts: October 14th
Seats Left: 7 seats.
Sonnets and Other Forms
This course is for students who have taken the basic meter and rhyme course or those who feel comfortable enough with meter and rhyme to explore
specific forms, such as the sonnet, quatern, pantoum and rondeau.
Starts: October 14th
Seats Left: 9 seats.

Novel Middles
Middles can be troublesome. In novels, middles sometimes "sag" because of the lack of complications or difficulties related to the main plot problem. In this class, students are challenged to work on typical concerns of the middle chapters of a novel: building the complications and story to lead inevitably to the climax.
Starts: November 3rd
Seats Left: 7 seats.
