Lecture and Discussion with Class Participation. This live class will be recorded and available for later viewing.

This course hones techniques writers often overlook or use haphazardly. You’ll learn which of the five senses dominates your writing and ways to comfortably include others; methods to toggle point of view; how to write dialogue that propels plot forward and to harness verbs that drive action. Specific selections demonstrate ways to anchor emotion to scene. Designed for novice to intermediate writers, this workshop offers safe space to try specific techniques to speed your progress.

Note: class will be recorded in case you miss a week.

Four Thursdays: June 22, 29, and July 6, 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET Online
