13 Weeks of a Different Fiction Writing Craft Technique Every Monday

For 13 Weeks, every Monday morning from October 2nd through December 25th. Kristine Kathryn Rusch and I will post four videos on a writing craft technique. How to do it, when to do it, what to be careful of, you name it.

This gives us an opportunity to focus down into the details of a craft technique in fiction writing. Each week will focus on a different technique. Some of these you may be good at, some techniques you may not have even realized it was possible. Four videos every week. No assignments.

We have laid out all but four of the weeks, so if you sign up, you can contact Dean and ask if we are going to cover or will cover a certain fiction writing craft technique and we will consider adding it in or tell you that we are already coving that.

A fantastic way to learn for the last quarter of the year and improve the craft of your writing going into 2024.
