ON EDITING – classes on critiquing, editing, shaping our words for better effect

ON WRITING – classes on writing, drafts, genres

ON MARKETING – classes on marketing, preparing our manuscripts for submission, queries, synopses, summaries, agents, editors

AND MORE – classes on how to be a healthy writer and much more

Writing is like lightning searing through our veins, like our blood inking our pages. The power of storytelling is more than the mere act of putting pen to paper, or fingers to a keyboard and words on a screen. Writing opens channels of creativity and energy, making us writers more than one solitary person pouring our soul onto a page. We are storytellers and storytellers go back as far as human’s need to communicate, from dancing around a fire to actors on the silver screen, storytellers touch humanity’s core.

My writing classes are a dynamic working writing experience for the student. In my classes, you’ll get extensive one-on-one time for rigorous personal attention and feedback as well as active class participation. Classes are both online and live with handouts and outlines available on the class webpage.

The classes focus on teaching the fundamental principles such as plot, structure, character, voice, dialogue, description, and point of view, as well as how to become a better editor, including line editing, critiquer of your own work, study genre, and others.   These principles are taught through lectures, class discussions, writing exercises, and in-depth critiques of your writing.

To celebrate and share the power and creativity of writing, Pat conducts readings and writing workshops online, all over Texas, and now, around the world!

For a complete schedule with dates and times, click EVENTS.

For more information, you can email me at pat.hauldren /at/ tx.rr.com or alleypat /at/ gmail.com or call  1.214.444.8916 to leave a message.

ONLINE & LIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS

Here is the schedule for writing workshops, both live and online, and my blogging dates. Check back often for updates. If you’d like to have Pat conduct a class or speak on writing in your area or with your writers’ group, use the contact form on the contact page or write pat.hauldren [at] tx.rr.com or alleypat [at] gmail.com (no spaces).

I hope sometime in your busy schedule you take advantage of some of these great classes offer by many writer’s groups (and even some of my own!) and always, always, keep writing!

Thank you, and may your muse move you in mysterious ways! :)
