This level is for students who have completed two terms of Online Level 1 and are eager to learn more about craft. The weekly routine is much like that of Level 1, but the exercises and discussions delve more deeply into narrative and poetic techniques. Students begin to identify these elements in their own work, and they begin to explore new elements of craft, such as creating a narrative tone of voice that offers a contrast or tension to the underlying emotion. Students have an opportunity to revise or deepen one of their assignments.
You can take this class using any device that connects to the Internet. Technical support is available throughout the course. Class size is limited to 12 students.
I have been stretched, pulled, and prodded, and feel I have many more tools in my arsenal and a much broader base from which to operate. I have especially enjoyed the teacher’s succinct comments and criticism and have taken much of it to heart. I find myself reading, and even watching movies with a completely different ear and eye and that is thanks to The Writers Studio.
