Instructor: Cat Rambo

Next class date: Sunday, August 14, 2022, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific Time.

A killer title can be the chef’s kiss atop an awesome story, or the flashy lure that pulls your reader in. How do you come up with that title and that takes your fiction even further? And names matter inside a story too: your character usually has nicknames, aliases, titles, and more. How can you use this to flesh out both your world and your character? Join Cat Rambo for a mix of lecture, discussion, and writing tips and exercises designed to have you thinking in new ways about names and titles as well as coming away with plenty of techniques and inspiration for future use.


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. They are recorded for the benefit of class members only. You are welcome to sign up for a class in order to receive the video.

Cost is $99 ($79 for returning students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

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

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register

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.
