UPCOMING CLASSES:

September 2018: Shaping Your Story

Whether you’re writing fiction or non-fiction, a good story has a shape based on a time-honored story structure. Using in-class exercises, students will learn how to apply the basic elements of story structure to their draft to make their pieces engaging to the reader. We’ll share our work in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. Students should bring a work-in-progress, either fiction or non-fiction, to class.

Fridays September 7, 14, 21  11:30 to 1:00 p.m.  Arts Escape, Southbury

October 2018: Revising Your Writing

Writing is revision!  Ask any writer.  Once you have a draft that is structured well, it’s time to use the elements of craft to turn it into an engaging piece that a reader will have a hard time putting down.  This class will help you polish your work so it best conveys your original intent. We’ll focus on craft issues such point of view, dialogue, setting, character development, and effective use of language. Students should bring a work-in-progress, fiction or non-fiction, to class.

Fridays October 5, 12, 19  11:30 to 1:00 p.m.  Arts Escape, Southbury
