GUARANTEE: if you go through the class and ultimately don’t find it useful, I will give you a free enrollment in any one of my future workshops, on any topic – no questions asked.
I always include a little one-on-one work with each student to help tailor the experience to the it individual needs. The average student can spend a couple of hours a week and get through the reading and assignments, though the exercises will have a much larger impact on your work.
All workshops take place in my private online forum, so you can post questions, comments, and writing excerpts without worrying who will see it. Plus, since we have deadlines of a certain day, not a set class hour, you can be anywhere in the world and still participate!

“Plotting the Short Story” – By request! We’ll cover:
Recognizing plot vs other elements in someone else’s story? How about in your own?
Different plot structures and plotting techniques.
Fitting a whole story into different lengths: flash (1000 and under), mid-length short story (about 4000 words), and longer short stories (up to 6500 words). And, what do you put in and what do you leave off the page?
Plus! Fundamentals of storytelling, prepping (including outlining, character arcs, and plot twists) and basic editing (including how to recognize the different moments of your story so you can move them around) are also covered.

If you’d like to join us but need a little flexibility on the start date, or assignment schedule, please let me know. I can always make accommodations for students. My goal is to help you walk through the lessons, to learn as much as you can… And I know that sometimes what works best for one student isn’t what’s right for another.
This is the only time in 2015 that I will be offering this particular workshop… I hope you can join us!
