CELIA IS TEACHING A WRITING CLASS!

CELIA IS TEACHING A WRITING CLASS!

This September Celia will be teaching an eight week class in speculative fiction for the Writer’s Center. It’s online, so anyone can join, and it will focus on the special skills needed to write fantasy and science fiction.

Students will get personal critiques from Celia on both short writing exercises and long term projects, as well as participating in peer critique discussions. By the end of the class each student will have written and polished a short story that is suitable for submission to a genre publication.
