Novella Science Fiction Mystery Add-On January 2024
Writing a Science Fiction Mystery Novella
Add-On of a Novella to the Science Fiction Mystery Class.
Starting in 2022 and continuing through 2023, Dean and Kris will be doing a series of really fun workshops in Las Vegas. They are limited to only 15 people attending. We have six planned out with Dean teaching three and Kris teaching three. They will be writing heavy and a ton of fun.
And the topics of the workshops are two genres or sub-genres smashed together.
And we screen who we let into the in-person workshops to make sure the work and pressure will not hurt anyone, but instead help them learn and advance their writing.
Oh, my, heavens, will these be fun!!
Study Along Workshops
Since the in-person Vegas workshops are very limited and also you must qualify and be in the right place in your writing, many writers either don't qualify yet or can't make the trip to Vegas for one reason or another. And with six really fun topics, you might not be able to make more than one or two in Vegas. But you can take all six as Study Along classes.
So Kris and I have come up with a way to allow writers of any skill level to study along. It won't be the full in-person workshop by a long ways, but it will still be pretty nifty. And cheaper.
See one of the Study Along workshops for full details.
Adding a Novella to the Mix...
If you are signed up for this Study Along class or the Vegas class, and would like to learn more on how to write a novella in the workshop topic, we are offering a special extra on-line class you can add on.
We might do a number of videos as an extension of the Vegas Class or the Study Along class focused on how to write longer, essentially a novella. We might not if we taught what we needed to teach in the class itself.
You will have two weeks from the last day of the class to write a novella and turn it in and Kris will read it. That's right, Kris reading all the novellas because she loves the form, not matter if Dean or Kris teach the class. Kris will read the novellas and give you feedback.
She has also won a ton of awards for her novellas as a writer, including a Hugo Award and a bunch of Asimov's Reader's Choice Awards.
You must have taken either the Vegas class or the Study Along class on the same topic to take this class.
This class is not part of the Lifetime Study Along. It is an extra, but being a lifetime member qualifies you to take this.
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CLASS UNLESS YOU ARE ALREADY SIGNED UP FOR THE VEGAS CLASS OR THE ONLINE STUDY-ALONG CLASS ON THE SAME TOPIC!!!
If something happens and you can not do the underlying Vegas or Study-Along class, we can move this to another class without problem.
