This is a special combined class that welcomes new and returning Master class students as well as new and returning students on the Advanced level. This online class meets via Google Meet; students are not required to live in the area.
Students come into the Master Workshop with plenty of experience and sophistication. The class builds upon ideas learned in the earlier levels, including the critical importance of strategically defining a narrative voice as well as The Writer Studio’s craft-oriented method of critiquing the work of fellow students.
Here Students take on the next challenge: honing skills and deepening constructive practices that will sustain them throughout their writing lives. They develop new self-awareness about their own internal process and increase their control over the “voice” that’s best suited to bringing their unique creative material to life.
Students at this level continue to do exercises from the Craft Class, but they also routinely complete poems and stories to submit for publication and can choose to work toward creating a book-length manuscript. Teachers in the school also participate in this workshop, bringing in their own material.
Because this class is conducted online, students are asked to complete their assignments a day before the class and place them in an online folder so the teacher and other students can familiarize themselves with the submitted material prior to the class discussion.
Students take this level with the permission of a teacher. For more information, please contact Phil Ivory at [email protected].
