Dear Fellow Writers,

Just a reminder that enrollment for the weekday morning section of the new STRUCTURE YOUR FICTION class will close soon.   Classes begin the week of September 24 and there are only a couple of slots remaining.

Although the primary focus of the class is to explore sound fiction structure, the content is also applicable to non-fiction prose pieces as well:   scene construction, chapter design, tension and pacing, character development.   Several non-fiction writers working on memoirs and other personal-history pieces have benefited from the course.  In this class, you'll learn how to put your stories together in a way that best supports the tales you want to tell.

This class lasts for 7 weeks, meets once a week on a weekday morning 10 am to noon, $200 including all materials. 

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.

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!
