The Ultimate Craft Class How to Narrate, Construct Character, and Build Scenes

In this two-day intensive workshop, Almond will lead participants through several essential craft lessons. Participants will learn how to create dramatic scenes, unforgettable characters, and an irresistible narrator. They will complete in-class exercises to help bring the lessons home. The craft concepts discussed apply to any genre of prose and to any level of writer. Come prepared to learn more in two days than you thought possible. This class includes a lunch break.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
