Subject: [writers-1045] Special Session - STRUCTURE YOUR FICTION Class


Dear Fellow Writers,

Responding to popular demand, I'm offering a weekday morning section of the STRUCTURE YOUR FICTION class.  This class lasts for 7 weeks, meets once a week on a weekday morning 10 am to noon, $200 including all materials.  Begins week of September 24.  Scene building, dialogue, how to critique your own and others' work, character construction, tension and pacing, how to build a chapter, publication.  Join us!  Limited to 5 students for maximum personal instruction and interaction. 

In this class, you'll learn how to put your stories together in a way that best supports the tales you want to tell.


As a reader, you know the difference between a satisfying story and one that leaves you restless and annoyed.  Thin soup leaves you hungry.  A satisfying story has good bones, a structure that makes the story cohere, a structure that can be mapped.  As a writer, you can learn sound structural  techniques so that your own stories deliver on their promise.  Your toolbox needs to be full and you must know how to use those tools.  Readers see clearly how well or poorly you've structured your story.

In our class, we'll learn how to build strong scenes, how to make powerful chapters, and how to drive plot via character development, among other techniques.  Although the class is focused on fiction writing, previous students who are writing memoirs or other non-fiction projects have found the class incredibly useful. 

Class will be held in West Ashley.  Each section is approximately two hours long and class scheduling is flexible. The class location is on the second floor and there is no elevator; so sorry.   Class fee is $200.

Please reply via email to [address removed] to indicate your interest and your preferred weekday.   Let's get you started on creating unforgettable stories!


Janice
