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.

Creative Writing
$89.00 (1 section available)
Students will develop and hone their creative writing skills in this class. Both beginners and advanced writers are welcome. Topics include memoirs, poetry, essays, short stories and novels. Individual development will be stressed and workshops will be used to encourage class participation.

How to Self-Publish for Print and Ebook
$59.00 (2 sections available)
Are you interested in seeing your novel in print, but not sure where to begin? Want to create an ebook and distribute your work online? If traditional publishing isn't for you, or you'd like to know your options, this is the course for you! You'll learn the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing, cover smart budgeting, working with an editor, book formatting, distribution channels and services, establishing a social media platform, and how to market your work. All genres and skill levels are welcome.

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.
