Creative Writing with Charlie Varon! 


More than just a class... 

A supportive community where you can grow as a writer!

"Thank you for your classes! They have enriched and expanded my world."

6 Mondays, Jan. 10 - Feb. 28, 2022

7-9pm Pacific time via Zoom

Special focus this class: WRITING CHARACTERS

CHARACTER: the foundation for memoir, fiction, and even much nonfiction.

I've been creating characters for the page and stage for 40 years and love sharing the journey of making characters come alive.


During the course of the 6-week workshop, you will...

- Email me one piece you've written (up to 1250 words)
- I'll email you suggestions for revision, and you do a rewrite (in 2 hours or less)
- In class you read it to the group, and then we discuss how to strengthen your work

Note that you can write in any genre you like, and there is no class performance.


Payment is on a sliding scale via PayPal or check:

Unemployed/underemployed/financially distressed: $100
