Join us for this 3-session virtual writing workshop, leading you through the process of creating submission-ready work.

Focusing on character development, plot points, story structure, and other essential components for crafting a great story, you will engage in writing exercises and share with the group to discuss and give feedback. Our professional instructor will review your work, providing one-on-one feedback, and together, as a class, we will learn to organically craft our stories based on our individual interests.

NOTE: Participants will be asked to submit a statement of interest prior to class indicating what they hope to achieve in the workshop. This will help inform points of focus during the workshop sessions.


This class will take place over three sessions:

  • Tuesday, January 19, 6-7:30pm
  • Tuesday, January 26, 6-7:30pm
  • Tuesday, February 2, 6-7:30pm
