Beginning this March 2024, WWA offers a new Virtual Creative Writing Program. This first series focuses on a full spectrum of writing craft skills. The curriculum is designed in particular for emerging writers but will appeal to established writers, as well.

This is a survey course for both Fiction and Nonfiction writers covering the basic craft elements that all writers need to know and understand as they begin and proceed with their writing projects. Some of the major areas of discussion will be:

  • choosing tense, point-of-view, and other narrative devices,
  • composing characters and establishing your main protagonist,
  • structuring your narrative,
  • starting your novel or work of nonfiction.

The sessions will touch on much more than listed herein, but these are the most relevant topics.

The four 120-minute sessions will take place weekly during the month of March and offer participants the opportunity to interact with their writing peers and course instructor, Laurie Scheer, via Zoom* meetings.

Zoom sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm Central:

  • March 5th
  • March 12th
  • March 19th
  • March 26th

The four sessions totaling 8 hours of instruction is being offered to WWA members for only $80. (Non-member registration opens at the end of February at the non-member rate of $120)

*Participants should download and be familiar with the free version of Zoom. If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, it is possible to participate using a smart phone or a computer at your local library.
