This class is geared toward beginners and anyone who started a fiction writing project only to put it down unfinished. If you have a story to tell and you want to write it, but for whatever reason haven't finished (or even started) this class is for you. It's designed to be a non-intimidating way to wade into the fun pool that is fiction writing.
When you walk out you'll know what "in media res" means and why you want to start your story that way, as well as five different ways to start your story (and what each beginning does to you story).
Note: There are 5 subtopics I teach in this topic but the cool thing (and the reason they are all separate classes) is that you don't need to take all of them. If you only want to work on beginnings for now, you can sign up for a single class as opposed to the entire course.

515 Washington St.
You'll learn the different approaches to crafting a well-written beginning.
Class will start with a discussion of the different examples of awesome beginnings. Followed by practicing the techniques that were discussed. Last a few students will get a chance to have their examples critiqued by the class.

I’ve been telling stories and writing fiction since before I lost my baby teeth. I’ve previously worked as an assistant editor for BOOM! Studios. This past year I’ve been published in Post Mortem Press’s horror anthology New Dawn Fades. I also contribute to WriteByNight’s blog (which I highly suggest checking out to see my thoughts on how writing works). Lastly because I’m a graduate of Emerson College with a Bachelor’s of Art in Writing, Literature, & Publishing and Television/Video.
