The Makery: Art of Observation with Silas House

The way to be a better writer is to be a better observer.  In this intensive class on focusing on fiction, nationally bestselling writer Silas House will take students through three weeks of prompts, craft readings, creative readings, discussions, and writing assignments that will encourage deeper observation to the wealth of inspiration and information our everyday worlds offer to us as writers as well as looking closely at the foundational tools of being a better writer, including sections on characterization, sense of place, structure, and more.  Your final manuscript will be marked up by the instructor.

This three week class is completely asynchronous so you can work on it on your own time. 

The Makery at Hindman Settlement School is a new online studio for writers and artists with full-time lives. Our goal is to help deepen your writing and reading practice throughout the year and from the place you make your home.
