FINE TUNING THE SENSES - Fine tuning your 5 senses gives you the power to excite, entice and entertain with your writing. Writing is about connecting to passion as we access our passion through what we sense.  This workshop is intended to be fun, educational and inspiring. Objective: Focusing on the senses turns the key, opening doors to your imagination, accessing the passion that enables you to clarify your message. Instructor:  Jane Bernard - $19.95 - 26 pages



Nostalgia: Creating Fiction from Personal Experience - Adding a personal touch is what gives words breath.  When we feel something, we are better able to draw it out, give stronger words to emotions because we’ve felt them ourselves. However, this is not memoir, we are not relating ourselves in our own experiences, but rather, we’re taking miniscule moments of our existence and making them into something far more grand, something with a life of it’s own rather than simply a retelling of our own life.  Call it entering the collective memory of fiction, if you will.  - Libby Cudmore - $28.95.  29 pages



NOVEL BUILDING 101 Writing a novel seems to be everyone’s dream but many die on the vine within the first few chapters and are tossed aside to never be seen again. Novel writing is a skill that can be taught. The mid novel hurdles can be overcome.  In Novel Building 101, T.C. McMullen will help you get started with your story from generating your idea into a strong novel backbone to writing the first chapter. Students will receive tip sheets along with personalized lessons and interaction through email with the instructor. This enables the instructor to comment directly on each student’s work file to better communicate the skills in each lesson. Those who complete the course will receive an ebook of writing tips.  35 pages

Or what made a story especially memorable. By combining many elements of writing, our instructor, Roseanne will help you learn how to write publishable stories. She has designed a course schedule that will teach you to use the senses, avoid boring dialogue, and write memorable descriptions.  Instructor:  Roseanne Dowell - $24.95  30 pages

THE MUSE: LEARNING TO WRITE FROM INSPIRATION - The Muse may bestow helpful gifts. It was a Muse's job to inspire, to get that kernel of an idea stuck in a mortal’s head. That small kernel could turn out to be a grand, epic novel or a beautiful piece of music. The Muse will focus on that inspiration and help people who want to write put that pencil to the paper - Instructor: Jamieson Wolf. $24.95

Would you be unable to diagram a sentence even at gunpoint?  Then this is the class for you. You may be way beyond a beginning writer, while still being unsure of some parts of grammar, which makes your work just good, rather than great.  Learn what your teachers never told you, right here.  Instructor:  Francis X.

Mother said right from the beginning she knew I’d be…"?  $24.95



WRITING AS MEDITATION - The purpose of this online course is to help you to familiarize yourself with the various elements of the writing as healing therapy. Writing helps to put your thoughts in perspective. It makes you see things from different or even the opposite angle. It will focus on heightened awareness. All senses perceive more than what is apparent. Meditation is not something occult, esoteric or outside the normal life. It's simply the art of mental self-control. Instructor - Chandra Ghosh Jain - $24.95

Objective:  This workshop will help you to hone your skills and polish your work so that it shines.  Instructor:  Jane Bernard $22.95
