Stacey’s writing class: creative, inspiring, fun.

“Stacey provides a comfortable learning atmosphere. I am sharpening my writing skills and  becoming confident in my work by reading it aloud with classmates to critique the work.  I truly enjoy this class both educationally and socially.” –Tina Riddle Deason

“Stacey is a wonderful facilitator, and instructor.” –Shari Adams

Wednesday pm & Friday am class format

• Brief lesson on an aspect of writing craft, (topics include: getting started, writing in first person, structure, writing dialogue, editing, pacing, etc.)
• Reading of works in progress.
• Useful and kind feedback from the group
• 10 minute stretch break.
• More readings, feedback, questions, sign-ups to read in the coming weeks, occasional in-class writing.

Friday afternoon class format

This class got me over my writer’s block during the first session. Stacey’s prompts are creative, inspiring and fun!

I want to say again how much I’m enjoying your class; it’s a real creative shot in the arm. I really appreciate not only the prompts approaching the writing process from different angles, but also the different perspectives from other students.

This fun, interactive class will focus on writing during class. The instructor will provide a variety of writing prompts designed to spark your imagination. Prompts could be a word, a phrase, an image or an idea. She’ll set a timer for 10, 15, or 20 minutes, and students will write non-stop in any genre they want: fiction, non-fiction, or memoir. Suitable for beginning to advanced writers.

We might read some of our in-class writing aloud (always optional), and there will be brief talks on aspects of writing craft, but most class time will be spent writing. If you want to start writing, or write more, this is the class for you!
