Class – Writing to Prompts

Next class date is Saturday, October 1, 2022, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time.

Prompts are everywhere. They range from themed anthology calls to story ideas someone insists on sharing at a party, and some are definitely more appealing than others. But how do you take a prompt and make it into a story? How do you make sure that you are faithful to the brief but also true to your voice? What can you do to make sure your story is one that stands out? I love writing stories based on prompts, and I’m excited to share some tips in this class!

Join Jamie Lackey for a workshop in which she teaches you how to use prompts joyously and effectively.

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.

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 a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

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

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.
