Moving Your Story From Idea to Finished Draft

lingusitics07semantics

The next available class is Sunday, January 7, 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.

Classes are taught online via Google hangouts 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.

Can’t make the live classes? Here’s an on-demand version.

Cost: $99 ($79 for former students).

To register for this class, mail me 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.

Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.

Important! Remember every class has several Plunkett scholarships for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.
