Summer 2017 Classes


Class Description

July 10-August 7

FICTION WORKSHOP--Instructor: Katrina Kittle

Have you finished some writing and feel ready for feedback? Join author Katrina Kittle and other writers in a supportive and constructive environment designed to help you take your writing through the revision process. Participants are asked to have some completed work ready to exchange with others. These can be short stories or novel or memoir chapters. Your entire work does not need to be finished! Katrina will train participants in how to discuss and give feedback, and will lead participants in workshopping each others’ writing. This class is limited to only 6 so that each participant has an opportunity to receive feedback on up to 20 pages of writing twice (that feedback will include thorough, written notes from Katrina and from the other workshop members, as well as an in-depth, supportive discussion).

DIALOGUE IN-DEPTH--Instructor: Katrina Kittle

Writing dialogue is one of those tricky "make or break" elements of fiction--bad dialogue can sink an otherwise promising story, and good dialogue can make a mediocre story fly. Through informal and friendly class lectures, exercises, and plenty of published examples, this three week course will help you write dialogue that gives the illusion of real speech but stays focused, reveals character, adds tension, and adds depth through subtext. We'll also tackle dialogue punctuation, writing in dialect, handling monologues, and more. (Note: this class is applicable to any kind of writing that contains dialogue, including memoir and nonfiction).       

LOCATION: Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, Dayton, OH 45419

Price: $85  



Manuscript Evaluations 
Katrina Kittle will evaluate novel drafts and provide in-depth, detailed feedback throughout the novel, as well as a lengthy summary at the end of what is working/what are the manuscript's strengths and suggestions for revision. Fee varies based on length of the project.
