Hey Folks.

Not sure if someone has already posted this, but it looks like a great opportunity.

Here's an excerpt from Cat's blog:
quote:
These are taught online, using Google+ Hangouts, which has proven really robust and easy to use. You need a computer with a microphone at a minimum but a webcam is best, so people can see you participate. Each class is limited to eight or nine students, depending on whether or not there will be a guest speaker.

Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction Stories: A six week workshop focusing on the basics of writing speculative fiction short stories, including plotting, creating believable and engaging characters, world-building, what to do with a story once it’s finished, dealing with editors and markets, and other necessities. Students will have the opportunity to workshop two stories over the course of the class.

Week One: Plots, Story Arcs and Narrative Patterns
Week Two: Characters and Dialogue
Week Three: World-building and Promises Made To the Reader
Week Four: Description, Delivering Information, and Literary Devices
Week Five: Revision and Rewriting
Week Six: Marketing Your Stories and Yourself

There are other classes available as well. Here's the link:

Not only those which sound good but she will edit novels.. for a charge.


Only problem with the classes though is that you have to do it at a set time. But unless they are doing the day my time, it would be worth it.

Her classes have definitely piqued my interest but I don't know if the hours work for me.

Does anyone here have any experience with her in-person classes/workshops?

It looks like I may have to cancel a couple sections of the F&SF class unless I get a few more sign-ups, so I'm going to push the starting date back a week and see if I can't shake the bushes for sign-ups in the meantime. If you're someone interested in taking the class but need to talk barter, don't hesitate to drop me a line.
