Class – 9-Step Outlining for Plotters and Pansters: Using Structure to Improve Your Storytelling with Sarah Buhrman

Next class date is Sunday, June 18, 2023a, 4-6 PM Pacific time.

Do you find that you write great scenes, but your overall story has… well, lost the plot? Learn how a simple 9-Step Structure can make sure you stay on course with your tale. We will talk about how plot structure works, the 9 Must-Have points for a complete and appealing story, and how 30 min of structuring can save your novel. We will also talk about how even pantsers can use this structure during the editing process to clean up wandering wording.

Join Sarah Buhrman for a workshop in which she teaches you how to make the most of your writing.

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 the discount or free classes, depending on their support level and can also receive the video afterward for $40.

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

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, Venmo, or some other means.
  • Whether or not you are a former student or Patreon supporter
  • How you heard about Cat’s classes

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.
