About This Class

In this class you will learn how to write for an older audience. Remember this is a free write class. The audience you will learn to write for is teens to adults. You will learn to write in all genre styles, but whatever genre style you choose to write in for your final project is your choice. This class will teach you how to craft a short story and how to write a novel if you wanted to. I will teach you the various genres and which ones sell the best. You will also learn about basic things like narration, dialog, character, plot, setting, and other elements that make a good story great. I will also discuss how a ghostwriter, editor, and proofreader are important to work with. I will even discuss ways you can sell your stories or novels online or through self publishing.I am going to be editing and adding more videos soon so if the videos seem ambigous or misleading please let me know. Oh I look forward to conversation too. That's what get's this class going the most.
