We have a wide variety of classes and programs to choose from, so whether you’re just beginning, or you’ve been writing for a while, we have something for you.
We’re sorry, this class is sold out!
*NEW DATE* – April 12. In this class, we will examine approaches to writing humorous fiction. We’ll analyze stories in terms of the writer’s handling of plot, character, and most importantly, tone.
This class will explore how working with an early reader (or two or three) can help prepare your work for its audience.
For those compulsive note takers and collectors who often have many loose parts and ideas, I hope to discuss the ways to go about finding and building a whole.
Through examples, exercises and discussion, our evening will aim to reintroduce you to revision as a fun, inspiring, and vital activity.
PJ Seminar: A Master Class on Reading Your Own Work Like an Editor & Understanding Publishing with Megha Majumdar
In the first part of this class, which is craft and process-oriented, we will consider how an acquisitions editor might read your work—what they might look for in an opening, and what questions they might ask of a manuscript. Then, in the second part of this class, which is more career-focused, we will discuss the acquisitions process as well as publishing process.
Scenes are a foundational element for prose writers. Whether you are writing creative nonfiction or fiction, the ability to build a convincing scene is a critical skill.
