<b>Intensives</b>

alt=

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You’re likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan.

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.

Character Development
Characters are the heart of every story. Their actions drive the plot. Their individuality is what readers or audiences most remember. It’s a daunting challenge—crafting seemingly real people out of mere words. But if you can create dimensional characters, you’ll be well on your way to writing a story that is believable, compelling, and perhaps even unforgettable.

In this course, you’ll discover characterization techniques that you can apply to fiction, nonfiction, screenplays, teleplays, or stage plays. Through lectures, script analysis, and exercises, you will learn how to find characters, flesh them out, make them fascinating, and bring them to vibrant life on the page.
