Intensive Writing Workshop

Start Date: 09/06/2024 | End Date: 04/29/2025

Location: TBA

Beginning September 9, 2024, students in the Lehi, UT  or Boise, ID areas can attend an intensive, two-hour a week workshop on writing and publication. Classes will be held from 1:30-3:30pm on Mondays in Lehi and 10am-11am for those in Boise until the end of April (with the usual breaks). The Utah class is onsite only; the Boise class is available online.

Extensive reading of different kinds of stylistic material including short stories, novels, and essays on the art of writing. Students will be expected to write regularly and consistently, and to learn to edit their own and other students’ material.

All students will work together to produce a work for publication over the course of the workshop, and will receive royalties from the sale of the work in perpetuity. As such, this might be the only class a student will take in his life that could pay for itself.

Location: TBD. For Boise students, some classes will be online.

Class Schedule (subject to change):

Weeks 1-5: Memoir–how to write compellingly about your own history

Weeks 6-8: Poetry–the language that makes heroes

Weeks 9-13: Flash fiction–writing a whole story in 500 words

Weeks 14-20: Essays–how to write so that even a college admissions dragon will read it

Weeks 21-32: Fiction–longer-form storytelling with flair

Cost: $395/two semesters (payment due in August) (alternate arrangements entertained)
