ONLINE Journey Through The Genres
Looking to build your repertoire of short (or long) stories? Interested in trying your hand at different genres? In this six week series, we will explore the ins and outs, dos and do nots of a different genre each class. Once we know the rules (so we can actively start breaking them), we’ll sharpen our pencils and get words on the page through prompts, exercises, and discussion. From blank sheets of paper we’ll build worlds and characters, and leave each class with beginnings of something magical, or terrifying, or profound.
Week 1: Magical Realism
Week 2: Steampunk
Week 3: Crime
Week 4: Fantasy
Week 5: Sci-fi / Space Operas
Week 6: Gothic
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
