In this private online writing course taught by Lead Story Editor Matthew Arkin, writers tackle a series of six exercises that pull them through the development of a piece of original writing.
Each completed assignment is returned with detailed notes and feedback, as well as an invitation to revise. The next assignment focuses on a different skill or element of craft, using the newest draft as the starting point.
At the end of the course, students will have six discrete drafts of the same piece to refer to as evidence of their progress and increased mastery.
The course includes 60 minutes of consultation by phone to be used as needed.
