Instructor: Cat Rambo
Next class dates: Sunday, August 29, 2021, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific Time.
The question isn’t how to tell a good idea from a bad one; it’s how to learn to turn any idea into a story. Come with a story idea, no matter how vague. We’ll discuss multiple ways of plotting a story based on its unique inspiration, as well as engaging in class exercises designed to hone your plotting skills. Learn how to build a roadmap for your story that will help you complete it in a class that combines discussion, lecture, and in-class writing exercises.
An on-demand version of this course is available here.
Live classes are taught online and require a 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. There is a limit of 15 students.
Cost is $99 ($79 for Patreon supporters and returning 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 are registering for.

- Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, Venmo, or some other means.
- If you’re a new student, please let me know how you found out about the classes!
You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved. 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 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.
Just took @Catrambo’s “Moving From Idea to Finished Draft” class, and it was a delight! Cat is not only super knowledgeable, but also friendly and approachable. I would highly recommend taking one of her courses and I hope to take more of them in the future.
