Instructor: Cat Rambo.
The next class date is Sunday, April 23, 2023 1-3 PM Pacific time. This session is free to Patreon supporters. You can purchase the video only for $50; $40 for Patreon supporters.
Beginnings are sometimes the last thing a writer finishes, and they must lead gracefully into a work that ends with the same sense of panache. In a class that combines lecture with in-class writing exercises and discussion, learn how to use beginnings to create their counterparts and vice versa while looking at strategies for both.
Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive the discount or free classes, depending on their support level and can also receive the video afterward for $40.
Live classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane. A webcam is strongly suggested but not required. If there is an on-demand version of the class, you will be provided with a free coupon for it, so you have access to those notes.
To register for a class, send e-mail with the following details:
- Which class or classes and the dates.
- Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, Venmo, or some other means.
- Please identify yourself if you are a returning student or support Cat on Patreon to qualify for the special rate.
You should receive confirmation of your registration within 48 hours.
Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has a slot reserved for such a student, and the sole criteria is that you can’t afford the class but really think it would be useful for you. To apply, mail me with your name, the class name/date, and a brief statement about why you want to take the class. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarship recipients will be notified the week before the class.
