Writing Publishable Fiction
Mondays 7-9 pm
February 27-April 24 2023
7-9 PM CST
$300 suggested price, sliding scale of $200-400
I am going to be offering a nine-week online creative writing fiction workshop that meets Mondays beginning February 27 with the last class April 24, fitting comfortably between Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, for those of you who are in New Orleans, but meeting on Zoom, to accommodate those who are not. We’ll meet Mondays from 7-9 pm CST. I’m going to cap enrollment at 8, so everybody gets lots of individual attention.
Asking price for this will be $300. I think that’s reasonable for what I’m offering. But I know what’s easy for some is onerous for others, so I’m doing sliding scale, $200-400. If tuition is any hardship, please let me know, and you can enroll at the lower end. And if you can afford to pay the higher end, you’ll be helping me cover costs and others to take the class.
I will be asking for half of whatever you pay up front to hold a place. If you’re interested, drop me a line by following the link below (or just go directly to my contact page).
What You’ll Learn:
– Everyone will have a chance to workshop two pieces of up to 20 pages
– Pieces for workshop can be stories or excerpts of novels-in-progress
– There will be a suggested reading list to facilitate class discussion and illustrate points of craft, but the only required reading will be the two pieces we workshop each week
