Writing classes help writers tell compelling stories.

Reach a wide audience and satisfy some of their deepest yearnings for pattern, mystery, and coherence in their lives.

Narrative writing allows for great scope and ambition, but it requires commitment to the habit of art to succeed. Our writing classes will help you develop your own habit of art, mastering the art and craft of narrative writing essential to creating fiction and nonfiction stories.
