This summer, I live-streamed  five one-hour classes.

Here they are recorded and unedited!

After you sign up, I'll e-mail you with instructions about how to view them, and PDF handouts for each class.

Breaking Story

Got a new idea or want to rewrite an old one?  Build from premise, find the structure and form that works for you and learn writing tools that will help you outline in a day.

Writing Fresh Scenes and Original Setpieces

You’ve found the structure.  Now work on the scenes! This class helps you create great scenes and set-pieces that are entertaining and original.

Character Camp

Your characters need to get out and play a little.  They aren't all the same and there's no reason they should have to play by the same old rules.

Dynamic Dialogue

Learn quick and effective writing techniques to revive bland exchanges, tune up character voices and bring more life to the page. 

The Page

Word choice, subtext, story. What makes a page a great read? In this class, the focus is on writing style, tone and technique. Through written examples, we take a hard look at word choice, scene direction and the nuances of the page.

All five classes included.
