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

This is for all writers of every kind. Perhaps you write for yourself and might want some feedback. Perhaps, you want to write but you need the motivation of group meetings to get you started. Perhaps, you just want to sit back and chat with others so creatively inclined. All motivations are welcome. I hope that meetings will eventually turn into "workshops" in which we read and comment on each other's writings, but majority will dictate.
