Novel and Memoir Writing Class
Tuesdays Feb. 19, 26, Mar. 5, 12 (9-12pm)
Thursdays Feb. 21, 28, Mar. 7, 14 (9-12pm)
I developed and teach this course for COCC. Occasionally, however, I like to do a couple private sessions in my home to develop a more in-depth connection with aspiring writers in my community.
We will cover your Hero’s Journey (What is your book about (plot) and how will it unfold?) Setting (Where does you story take place?) Characterization (Who are you hero’s and villains?) Point of View (From what perspective will you tell this story?) and Dialogue (How to do conversation well.)
The cost for my private class is the same as what the college charges. It just depends on which type of setting you prefer. Their classes are larger, and there is some advantage to having more input from your peers. My private sessions are a more personalized experience, if that’s what you’re looking for.
IS THIS FOR YOU?
Are you wondering where and how to begin, or have you already started and in need of input, or perhaps you’ve finished a first draft and are ready to revise. If any of those descriptions fit you, then I hope you’ll join me, either on campus or for my private class. You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
