Spring Craft Studio - Mar 1-May 3


"This is such a safe environment to grow and learn, thank you," 
~ Cheryl

Class Detail:  You will read aloud several times to get a deep connection to the storyteller's voice within, we will immerse in two books, a novel and a memoir, in order to carefully dissect each aspect of craft and structure.  You'll leave knowing how to tear a book apart in order to see the inner workings of process, a technique that will serve you for all your writing life. You'll also learn about scene, scene progressions, structure and antagonistic forces.  This class is designed to help you make breakthroughs with your writing and help you get closer to your publishing goals. Audio option for long distance students.  Write me at jclauck@gmail.com for info.
