Winter 2015 Classes

Class Description

 
Saturdays

Fiction Jumpstart
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
 
Also a popular January class, Jumpstart is back to help you with your new year’s resolution to start a new project...or finally finish one! Several weekly writing prompts and exercises will lead to the development of a character and the structure of a plot. An informal, supportive combination of the Craft Class and a workshop, participants will share and discuss their exercises. A portion of each class will also be devoted to some aspect of the writing life, such as writer’s block, dealing with the inner critic, and ways to carve a writing schedule out of our crazy busy lives.
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.
