You’ll examine the foundation of your story, shore up the framework of your plot, plumb the emotions and backstories of your characters, sharpen dialogue and point of view, and refine your language and theme.  By the end of the course you’ll have new skills, a helpful to-do list, and pages of new material to move your revision in the right direction.

This course is geared towards fiction (both short stories and novels), though lessons can be applied to other forms of writing. Students should have a first draft completed to best utilize classroom prompts and exercises.

This is a self-directed class. There is no instructor oversight or discussion element. Students will have access to the content for one year after their date of purchase.
