Instructor: Cat Rambo
Next class date: Sunday, June 18, 2023, 1-3 PM Pacific Time.
Stories of found family, childhood friendships, workplace dynamics, and other narratives with a focus on a cast of characters rather than a single protagonist can be much more complicated. How do we write stories that create enough room on stage for such a cast, rather than spotlighting a single person? In a mixture of lecture, discussion, and writing exercises, we will learn how to Â think through, track, and convey the web of relationships in your fiction.
Classes 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 returning students and Patreon supporters, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions).

Free scholarships:Â 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 canâ€™t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail meÂ and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.Â QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply.Â 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.
