Class – Body Language and Description As Genre

Next class date is Sunday, December 17, 2023 1-3 PM Pacific time. You can purchase the video only for $50; $40 for Patreon supporters.

Language is a powerful tool, and in short fiction every word counts. The specific descriptive words used build the world. A writer should use this tool with intention. Something as simple as how a door opens tells the reader a thousand unspoken things. The same goes for body language. How a character’s body moves through a space communicates emotion as well as imparts information about the type of story the writer wants to tell. In this hands-on workshop, you will see specific examples of this as well as get a chance to practice the technique.

Join Jennifer Brozek for a workshop in which she teaches you how to use your character’s body language.

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.

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.
