About This Class

Good writers know that everyone has a story to tell, even the seemingly boring and most unfriendly types. It’s your task as a writer to reveal the story, tell it honestly and originally, and find the common thread of humanity. 

Subcultures are a rich and limitless supply for writers. The trick to writing about these specialized groups is gaining access to their often hidden and private members and their passions.

In my class you’ll learn how to access and write about these people and places. 

This is a class for writers of all levels. The one requirement is a curiousity for the strange and diverse things that humans do.
