March 7-April 4

Writer's Workshop Lite
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
Want to benefit from sharing your work in progress but you don’t have time for a “real” workshop with all the hours reading at home it entails? Would you like exercises and immediate feedback to help shape your stories and hone your craft? Workshop Lite could be for you. This five week inspiration generator and craft polisher of a class will include mini-craft lessons, light homework to hold you accountable and keep you producing, and lots of in-class sharing—instant feedback with no poring over manuscripts at home. This is a perfect followup to Jumpstart or for any writer looking for focus, community, and the necessary tools to keep building the story you’re carrying.
Class will be held at the conference room of Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, 45419
Price: $150

Revision Inspiration
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
 
Have you reached the wonderful, celebratory goal of completing a manuscript? Did you participate in NaNoWriMo? Are you wondering: what next? As you receive feedback, do you wonder which suggestions to take? Which to ignore? Do you find the process of figuring out how to improve the story overwhelming? This course will give guidance for the revision and editing process, while taking many craft lessons (on character motivation, voice, point of view, description, plot, etc.) to the next level. Easy, practical guidelines and checklists will be given for approaching changes both big and small in your own work. We’ll also discuss how to find good, trusted readers, and the pros and cons of writing groups. NOTE: you do NOT have to have a completed manuscript to take or benefit from this class.
Class will be held at the conference room of Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, 45419

Manuscript Evaluations 
Katrina Kittle will evaluate novel drafts and provide in-depth, detailed feedback throughout the novel, as well as a lengthy summary at the end of what is working/what are the manuscript's strengths and suggestions for revision. Fee varies based on length of the project.
