Writing Classes

JANUARY 2017 - HAIKU 201
HAIKU --. Sir George Sansom called haiku 'little drops of poetic essence.' Haiku began in Japan during the 17th century. They are short, image-based poems about the things that make people feel connected to nature or human nature. The words should evoke in the reader the emotions felt by the poet.

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE- One of the great things about taking a class on FanStory is that you can study in the privacy of your own home and choose the schedule that works best for you.

ACCESSIBILITY-- Your lessons and assignments are available to you 24/7 as long as you are a member. If three months after your class ended you would like to review your assignments or lessons, you will be able to do it.

CUSTOM-MADE CLASSES --I understand we all have different learning styles. For example, I am a kinesthetic learner (very visual, hands-on type). That is why I offer detailed step by step instructions for those who need it.

CLASSROOM CHATROOM = I will be available to chat with you about your class progress or if you have questions about your homework. You will get to know me and your classmates better. CHATROOM PARTICIPATION IS NOT MANDATORY in my class but I highly recommend it. It's a great opportunity to get to know your classmates and me. Great friendships have been formed in our chatrooms.

I don't make the classroom chats mandatory for two main reasons,

one - because some people are not able to use our chatroom
two - because it's very hard to get everyone together, especially the fanstorians who live in other countries.

GETTING THE HELP YOU NEED --I will be available anytime every day of the week. I will get back to you within 48 hours. On your pre-class questionnaire, you will get all my contact information= email, phone, skype, and fanstory.

Thank you for your enrollment consideration and interest,

You may address me as MariVal or Gypsy

Class Begins: January 2nd

Rhyme -- a Poetic Device
Learn how rhyme can be used both regularly in formal verse and irregularly as one of many devices available to poets. Get familiar with the terms used by reviewers to describe various types of rhyme. Whether you want to write formally or use rhyme effectively and sparingly in free verse. This is the course for you.
Class Begins: January 7th

Start Your Novel
Why do some novels grab you from the first page while others you put aside? How do you take a seed of an idea and grow a full-blown novel from it? Learn all of the necessary skills to develop your story idea into a novel outline and write the first draft of the beginning chapters.
Class Begins: January 9th

Novel Middles
Middles can be troublesome. In novels, middles sometimes "sag" because of the lack of complications or difficulties related to the main plot problem. In this class, students are challenged to work on typical concerns of the middle chapters of a novel: building the complications to lead inevitably to the climax. Also addressed will be novel middle issues of firm establishment of the story world, backstory, themes, symbols, and narrative voice.
Class Begins: February 13th

Learn with the guidance of an instructor.
Four week classes are only $99.00
