09:38 am: Guinea Pig Writers Needed!

The Art and Craft of Writing

a Superversive Writing Class

 

For some time, Superversive Press has been talking about putting out a writing course–a series of videos or podcasts. This class would be based on my Writing Tips, my The Three Things I Tell Everyone–my collected information gathered from my years as a professional editor, and on The Art and Craft of Writing, a class I taught last fall.

However, before we can do this, I have to put words on (electronic) paper and figure out what it is that we want to say in each class.

To encourage myself to do this, I am thinking of offering a writing course this November. The course would be specifically tailored to help people doing NANOWRIMO or revising a Work In Progress. The details are as follows.

When: Month of November

Subjects to include:

Description, Mood, Genre, Setting
Adding senses
Backstory vs. Revelation
Adding Exposition

Plot we’ve got, quite a lot
Strong openings
Two Strings
The Trick
Payload

Writing Three Dimensional Characters
Dynamic Characters
Goals and Motivation
The Foil

Heart and Soul – adding emotion
Interior dialogue
“Pink” passages

Cost: $25

This class will be a text-based class with simple exercises designed to help improve style, characters, plot and more. 

Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

If your preparatory words make it to electronic paper, and a course develops from it, I am interested.
