Two classes for fiction writers in Seattle

Christine Fairchild is teaching two classes for writers in Seattle: Creative Writing, and Editing the Manuscript. Here are the details:

Creative Writing
Mondays, April 26-May 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
$80 Limit: 10 students
Location: Instructor’s studio (near Gasworks in Seattle)

This 4-week class will jump-start your writing or venture further than you’ve experienced with your writing. We’ll use writing prompts to trigger creative insights, and/or explore story lines relevant to your ongoing project(s). My goal is to identify your writing strengths and help you build on them. You learn how to trigger your creativity on your own and work with others in a creative environment. Perfect for those looking for a writing group with constructive feedback, not criticism.

This class is perfect for those feeling stuck with story lines or experiencing “writers block,” as we will kick your creative mind back into high gear. Bring blank paper or existing work.

Editing the Manuscript
Wednesdays, April 28-May 19, 6:30-9 p.m.
$120 Limit: 10 students
Location: Instructor’s studio (near Gasworks in Seattle)

This 4-week editing workshop is designed to help you prepare your manuscript for submission. Editing emphasis will be placed on 1) tight scene structure, 2) no unnecessary words, and 3) strong characters.

Participants will be expected to offer feedback and perspectives on other’s work and be open to receiving commentary on their own work. The instructor will review the first chapter for each student.

Bring your manuscript (novel or screenplay), and you’ll end the workshop with your best work yet.
