Stories That Change Our World: Writing Fiction with Empathy, Insight and Hope
December 29, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PST
INSTRUCTOR: Cat Rambo
NEXT CLASS DATE: Saturday, December 29, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time.
COST FOR CLASS: 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).
Join Cat Rambo for a workshop in which she addresses a question of pressing importance in today’s world: how do we craft stories that inspire, encourage, and above all, shape the future by teaching? How do we use writing to expand our knowledge and understanding of the world? How do we avoid being didactic — while still using our art to address the needs and concerns of today. A combination of lecture, discussion, and writing exercises will leave you encouraged, inspired, and ready to write your own stories.
Live classes are taught online via Google hangouts, are limited to 15 participants, 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 this class, send an email with the following details:
- The email address that you use for Google stuff.
- Which class or classes and the dates
- Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, 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 Lady Dunsany. Scholarship recipients will be notified the week before the class.
