To sign-up: Please email me:

I will send you, via e-mail, a 30+-page packet of information and exercises for character-building, plot structure, dialogue, point-of-view, revision, and more. In addition, you can submit up to 15 pages (double-spaced, 12 point font, standard margins) of writing for my editorial notes. I will critique the pages, addressing any issues, including but not limited to plot, character development, syntax, grammar, and dialogue. I will point out what I believe works and offer some advice for an overall direction. After I give notes, I will be available via e-mail for follow up if you have questions. This class is available now. I will take up to ten students at a time and get back to you within one week of payment.
