In many respects the online version of The Fledgling Course, the Narrative Nestling Course is slightly more goal-oriented. While The Fledgling Course focuses solely on the generation of ideas and content, this at home series culminates with all participants having completed the draft of some original piece of creative writing—whether it be a chapter, short story, essay, poem, or scene. (It is not required that writers have an idea for such a piece prior to class and “homework” will be limited to an hour or less extra per week).

In each session we will discuss the tenants of developing a narrative, exercising skills in character development, creating conflict, and more through writing prompts. The first four weeks will be dedicated to discussion and the generation of ideas. In the last two weeks, we will continue developing work and participants will have the opportunity to receive more critical feedback on edited work generated in class. Following the final session, Sammi will provide written annotation and feedback on up to 15 double spaced pages of work for writers who turn their work in within two weeks of the last meeting. 

These sessions meet face to face through a (free) online conferencing app, which means you may participate from anywhere in the country (or the world)!
