New Creative Writing Class for Winter

Hello again!

Time’s speedy passage is stunning, especially during the summer months. It’s September?!

Be that as it may, the change from warm-to-cold temperatures often encourages writers to consider new ideas and goals to sustain them through the winter. Are you one of those fiction writers who’d like to refocus and resume learning?

Last year, I offered a beginner’s creative writing group course from November through May. The course included lectures, writing exercises, and a workshop element for five dedicated students.

This winter, I’m offering a new creative writing course.  In a nutshell, this course offers the writer an opportunity to work one-on-one with an instructor. The advantages of this set-up are many, especially if the writer has an understanding of the basic elements of fiction and/or if the writer has an existing project in the works. Lessons are tailored to the writer’s specific needs and are applied directly to the writer’s work. A flexible schedule and a manageable time frame for learning are also benefits of this course.

Click the link above to learn more or visit my Current Classes Offered page.  Please note: due to other projects, I’m only taking 8 students for the winter. Classes do not begin until December, but students will be signed up on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if you wait until late November to commit, the spots may be taken!

“But wait,” some may say, “what about the beginner’s workshop class?” Never fear – the class will be offered again, but not until next year. My current long-term vision is to offer Basic Elements of Creative Fiction Writing (Workshop) and One-on-One Creative Writing Instruction (Fiction) in alternate years. img_5633

I have also updated a few of the webpages, so feel free to cruise around the site. Again, I’m available for one-on-one creative writing teaching this winter along with on-going academic writing tutoring, and manuscript editing. If you think I could be of some assistance in these areas, get in touch and/or spread the word!

Thanks, and happy writing!
