with Chris Belden


This workshop is designed for those who have little or no experience writing fiction. We will dip our toes into the creative waters using writing prompts designed to illustrate the basics of creative writing: point of view, character, plot, mood and tone, etc. We will then discuss your work in a positive and constructive light, all aimed toward inspiring further writing.


Optional: Want an extra hour of one-on-one attention?
Chris will provide written feedback on either part of a manuscript OR to help advise with the submission process for a total of an extra hour of consultation time. Please choose this option in the drop-down menu when purchasing this workshop. This extra time will be scheduled directly with the instructor.

About the Workshops...

“WWW gave me the boost I needed and took so little time, too. I was able to use the writing prompts later and all the info we covered was informative and inspirational. I was brimming over with writing energy after the class was over. I am definitely doing this again and would highly recommend it to anyone at any age…. I was highly impressed.”
