From May 29 to June 26, 2014, Scott will be offering a 4-week online course entitled “the Practical Craft of Fantasy.” The lectures will be covering topics such as worldbuilding, characters, story structure and realism.
This class is about tools and techniques—spotting them, analyzing them, and understanding what they will or will not bring to a story. Inspiration comes from the heart and can’t be weighed, but on a sentence-by-sentence, page-by-page level, there are distinct elements of craft that can be used to build and strengthen your stories.
In this class, you’ll get in-depth written lectures—augmented with audio lectures from Scott—as well as homework assignments to practice your new skills.
The fee is $350.
