Writing Classes

Free Verse
"Just prose cut up into lines". This has been offered as a definition of free verse. This class will show you the many reasons why this is a far from accurate definition of a style of poetry, often considered ultra modern, but which has already been around for more than a century. Discover its unique and multi-faceted beauty as an alternatively available style for you, as a poet, to use as you consider appropriate.
Class Begins: In 6 Days

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.
Class Begins: April 3rd

MARCH 2017 - HAIKU 201
HAIKU are short, imagistic poems about nature and things that make people feel connected to it. Japanese poets have written haiku for hundreds of years and in the last forty years, the appreciation of haiku has spread all over the world. The essence of haiku is the way in which it succinctly captures observations of the natural world.

Why are people writing haiku? We write it because it is enjoyable and because writing haiku gives us a new way to look at the world.

You too can write haiku!

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE- One of the great things about taking a class on our FanStory community site 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 for as long as you are a member.

CHAT-CLASSROOM-- the students and I have the ability to speak and hear each other in the classroom. It is an awesome opportunity to have a productive and enjoyable classroom experience.

GETTING THE HELP YOU NEED --I work at home and my schedule is flexible. I give my students all my contact information. I want to make sure they get the help they need to learn.

HAIKU CLUB - We have a haiku club available to you at no extra cost. My students love it! You can practice what you learn in class and make new friends.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a PM or an email= marival58@gmail.com
