ANYTIME ONLINE CREATIVE WRITING CLASS

Cost: $125.00

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.

Compelling Fiction for Young Adults 

I’ll be teaching a one-day, online workshop through the Cape Cod Writers’ Center this summer. It will explore the elements of compelling young adult fiction and examines various genres of YA writing. Within it we will learn about the importance of voice, plot, character, tension, dialogue, and point-of-view in contemporary work. Exercises will be provided to get you started and/or propel you further in your work-in-progress. Come ready to be inspired. To sign up, please visit the Cape Cod Writers’ Center website.
