AVAILABLE CLASSES


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: In 3 Days
Seats Left: 6 seats.


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 on 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: September 1st
Seats Left: 7 seats.
Haiku and Senryu
This class on haiku and senryu will examine the history of the two centuries-old forms of poetry. We will define and clarify current thinking around the two forms (English-Language and Japanese), and clear up misunderstandings and misconceptions, Students will write and analyze examples of haiku and senryu.
Starts: September 1st
Seats Left: 7 seats.


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.


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.
