I'm Teaching Writing Again
As of Monday, Jan. 16th I will be an instructor, once again, at Frederick Douglass Creative Arts Center in Manhattan. (96th Street and Broadway). The class will meet each Monday from 7-9 p.m. for eight weeks.
I will be teaching Novel 1: From Concept to Publication. The course will cover everything from generating story ideas to characterizations, plot development and pacing as well as the use of dialogue and narration, editing, writing the synopsis and the admission process.
Those who have work in progress are also encouraged to attend as the course will be structured based on the levels of the students. Those students will then be preparing their work for submission to editors by the end of the eight weeks. Several of my former students have gone on to be published.
Classes are small with no more than ten students per class, so you will get individual attention. This is a workshop format, very interactive. The more you put in the more you get out.
There will be an assignment each week. Students are asked to come prepared with a three ring binder, ( & paper) and 3 x 5 index cards.
The class is intense, but fun and definitely informative. So if you've ever had an idea and just didn't know how to get it going, this is the course for you.
Please feel free to forward to those who may be interested.
