Hey homeschoolers! This round of Literary Clay is for you!

These two hour sessions are targeted at (but not limited to) high school students and will be held each Monday morning in November 2018 from 10am-noon at Launching Success, 133 Prince Ave, Bellingham WA. Each session is $15 per student (or pay $50 per student if you want to attend all 4 sessions – a $10 savings!). Due to seating limitations, preregistration is recommended. 

Seats in Flash Fiction are no longer available, but the other three have openings! Just keep scrolling down until you find the one you want.

November 5th… Literary Clay Session 1: Flash Fiction. This class is no longer available. Make your words count! In flash fiction, the author’s challenge is to get a story idea into a compact form of approximately 1000 words without sacrificing crucial details. This fun literary challenge is a great way to hone your creativity and boost writing skills. Students are encouraged to bring a laptop to put new learning into practice during the class.

November 12th… Literary Clay Session 2: Building Strong Characters.  Give your characters the magnetism that develops a sense of connection with your readers. Come with existing ideas, or brainstorm some new ones. In this session, your characters will begin to take on a life of their own. Students are encouraged to bring a laptop to put new learning into practice during the class.

November 19th… Literary Clay Session 3: The Trail of a Muse Part 1. From idea to publication, this two part session gives the basics for transferring thoughts into a book that can be shared with others. In part 1 we will explore how to get started, the essentials for story construction, what to do about ‘writer’s block’, how to back up your work, and more! This is a full, power packed session that will get you on the road to publishing your creation. Students are encouraged to bring a laptop to put new learning into practice during the class.

November 26th… Literary Clay Session 4: The Trail of a Muse Part 2. This session is part 2 of 2. During the session students will sign up for their own CreateSpace account and prepare their book for upload.
