Writing Classes

Novel Endings
In this class, students will learn how to write a satisfying novel ending that addresses the story problem but avoids being too pat. Students will continue their work from earlier courses by studying the end of "The Great Gatsby" and working through exercises toward completing their own novels.
Class Begins: In 6 Days

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: In 6 Days

HAIGA ART
HAIGA is a style of Japanese painting that incorporates the aesthetics of HAIKAI. Haiga are typically painted by HAIJIN poets, and often accompanied by a HAIKU poem. Like the poetic form it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that "since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was ... a natural activity.

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
