Other Writing with Susan Classes Taught by Susan Omilian


Beginnings, Middles and Ends

Learn where to begin your story, how to end it in a satisfying way, and tips for developing everything in between.  With a strong opening, promising rising action and a successful conclusion, your story will keep the reader turning the pages until the end. Open to non-fiction (memoir) and fiction writers at all levels.

Writing in Scene

Writing dynamic “in-the-moment” scenes is one of the key tools that writers have to “show, not tell” their story.  Learn basic elements of a scene including dialogue, setting, point of view and conflict, and use them to develop characters, plot and dramatic tension. Open to writers at all levels in fiction (short stories, novels), non-fiction or memoir.
