Breakthrough Writing-Your First Novel
$59.00 - $99.00 (2 sections available)
Students will learn how to start a novel (or if applicable, finish one), and to revise and self-edit with clarity and honesty. But, most importantly, students will learn to unfurl the story in their head and put it on paper in a cohesive way. Topics include developing plot, characters, conflict and pacing. Finer points such as naming your characters, will also be discussed. Feedback from the instructor (a published author) and fellow students will be provided.

How to Write for Magazines and Other Publications
$39.00 (1 section available)
If you ever wanted to write for local, regional, or national publications, this course will teach you how to pitch your ideas and get published. Students will learn how to find story ideas, target appropriate publications, write query letters and write a great article. We'll discuss current trends in publishing, realistic payment expectations, and tips on how and where to get started.

Memoir Writing Workshop
$39.00 (1 section available)
Everyone has a story to tell. In this workshop, students will learn what it takes to write a memoir, including tips on how to get started and practical advice on publishing options.

Poetry
$59.00 (1 section available)
This class will introduce students to the basics of poetry so that appreciation will be gained for the art form, and so that a better understanding of rhyme and verse will be learned. As well, students will be given the opportunity to write new poetry in a supportive environment with critique offered as constructive feedback from both the Instructor and fellow students who will explore poetry in a workshop format.

Writing the Short Story
$99.00 (1 section available)
A short story is a slice of life and it's the best place for new writers to hone their craft. Stories capture particular people and places, memories and images, and ideas and emotions that make up daily lives. Get started (or to get going again) and tap into thoughts, memory and imagination. Topics include developing structure, narrative, voice, plot and character; creating dialogue; and examining the work of key contemporary short story writers. Writing exercises and discussion will round out class sessions. The aim is to complete a short story by the end of the course. No previous writing experience is required.
