Stacia Ann:

Have a novel outline or first chapter on your desktop you?re dying to start? Or do you just have an idea and want to develop it into a novel? In this class you will have the opportunity to go from the seed of an idea to the outline to the first three chapters of your novel. The class will read F.S. Scott Fitzgerald?s "The Great Gatsby," one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, available free online. Students will have the opportunity to study Fitzgerald?s masterful strategies for introducing characters and conflict to apply in their own work. Class starts Apr 2.

Stacia Ann: Like a story with a lot of blood and guts? No? Well, hardly anyone does! Good horror is all in the suspense, not the gore: the suspense of not knowing, of suggestion. The writer wants to creep you out, not gross you out. The longer the suspense can last, of not knowing what lurks behind the closed door, or when the killer will strike, the more horrific the story.
In this class, learn techniques of drawing out suspense, finding the horror in the mundane, and building to a horrifying but satisfying climax.
The class will be structured around studying classic and contemporary horror stories and working toward the completion of one story. Join us in Nov. 6, 2017!
Taught by published writer Stacia Levy.

Stacia Ann: Often novice writers feel comfortable with developing three-dimensional, believable characters. But what good are these characters if we don't see them in action? Action is a matter of plot, which many writers feel less comfortable with. We'll develop our plots and understanding of plot in this class to write one story. We'll focus on such issues as inciting event, complications, and climax, and learn how to connect the plot to character, making character and plot inextricably related. Class starts July 10.

Stacia Ann: Tired of the same old short story classes that focus on character, plot, setting, and theme? If you are ready to go beyond these basics to study more advanced issues of fiction writing, take Advanced Short Stories with award-winning fiction writer Stacia Levy. The class will explore such advanced fiction issues as unconventional point of view, unreliable narrator, nonlinear plots, and the story universe through studying noted short fiction and completing at least one short story. Classes begins June 12 and August 7.

June 5, 2017 at 2:20PM
    Stacia Ann: Thanks, all! Glad you liked it:)
    Our public life these days provides such raw material for comedy, however, that I can't take complete credit:)
