Re-Visioning Your Story: Now that You've Started, How Does it End with Kate St. Vincent Vogl

Kate St Vincent Vogl

Includes a critique of your work by Kate!

So you’ve started writing, but now you don’t know how or where the story ends. Maybe you’re stuck in the middle, or maybe you’re not sure how much revising is enough for a story to be truly finished. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, this class will guide you through what you need to know. Through in-class exercises and discussion, this class will consider the building blocks of story and what you need to ensure you’ve got in your manuscript before it’s complete. We’ll examine how to hook your reader and give a knock-out ending. We’ll consider the techniques needed to write effective dialogue. Find out which elements editors are looking for in each scene, and find out how best to include these techniques in your writing. You'll leave this class energized and with a clear vision of what your manuscript needs next!

Also, Kate will critique students’ writing, included in the class fee! Bring a hard copy of 2,000 words of your story, and, if it is part of a larger work, include a one-age synopsis of the story. Also bring a SASE so Kate can mail you her critique. You must use Times New-Roman, 12-point font for your manuscript and synopsis, which should be single-spaced
