You may be wondering which fiction class would be right for you this fall. Let us help! (See also "Which Nonfiction Class Should I Take This Fall?")
If you're an enthusiastic, serious beginner or an experienced short story writer or novelist who wants to broaden and deepen their craft, Tools for Writing Fiction with Christopher DeWan would be an excellent class for you, starting October 16 in Pasadena.
If you’re an emerging writer mostly interested in short stories, we’d suggest The Art of the Short Story with Bernard Cooper starting October 18 in Silver Lake.
If you’re working on a novel, we'd recommend Novel II with Kate Maruyama starting October 11 in Glendale.
If you’re a short story writer or novelist who’d prefer a class on the westside of Los Angeles, we’d recommend Westside Fiction with Laura Warrell starting October 16 in Culver City.
If you write YA, you can't go wrong with Young Adult Fiction with Zan Romanoff starting October 16 in Hancock Park.
If you have completed a novel and you’re ready to get feedback on the entire manuscript, you could sign up for Diana Wagman's Revising Your Manuscript workshop, starting October 14 in Echo Park.
If you’re more in the mood for a one- or two-day seminar this fall, we’d suggest Narrator as Cinematographer—Camera Shifts in the Third Person with Joshua Mohr on October 20 and 27 (online), Show and Tell with Seth Fischer on November 10 and 17 (online), All Talk—Writing Dialogue with Chris L. Terry on November 4 (Hancock Park), Shaping Your Story—How a Screenwriter’s Toolkit Can Help You Finish (or Start) Your Book with Christopher DeWan on November 11 and 18 (Pasadena), or Family Ties—Mining the Personal for Tension-Filled Fiction with Lilliam Rivera on December 16 (Los Feliz).
