Class: A Mixed Bag: Combining and Manipulating Genre Conventions with Tracy Townsend

A Mixed Bag: Combining and Manipulating Genre Conventions with Tracy Townsend

Next class date is Saturday, October 10, 2020, 9:30-11:30, 2020 AM Pacific Time.

In this class, we throw the idea of neat boxes and categories out the window and ask ourselves, what more can we achieve as writers when we blend and blur the lines between genres? From subverting tropes to reimagining story structures, this is a class for writers interested in coloring outside the lines.

Join Tracy Townsend for an online workshop on how to blend genre conventions.


Classes are limited to 15 students. They are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. Classes are recorded for the benefit of class members only.

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).

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, Venmo, or some other means.
  • Whether or not you are a former student or Patreon supporter
  • How you heard about Cat’s classes

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for multiple classes.
