This is the Online Masters Class. Students are encouraged to recognize their own strengths and limitations as writers so that they may consciously develop narrators, and consequently a writing style, that is uniquely suited to them. The goal of this class is to help students discover a way of writing that can be sustained throughout their lives. Students at this level, while continuing to do exercises from the Craft Class, routinely complete poems and stories to submit for publication, and work toward creating a book-length manuscript.

Students who have created a successful persona narrator in an exercise are encouraged to use that exercise as a germ for a story. As the student works on that story, s/he is free to post it, two pages at a time, over successive weeks of the term. It’s very instructive for the other students in the class to watch the Writers Studio method flower in this way.
