How to make a story unstuck?
So many stories begin with such promise and then we get to a point and suddenly the energy that had made us want to write the story has vanished. There are a number of strategies to handle this situation. These strategies are what we will focus on in the class. During the class I will ask you to describe stories that seem to have hit impasses and then we will workshop possible solutions.

Where are the classes and workshops located?
Currently, all Academy classes and workshops are held online on Zoom.
I registered but didn't receive a link. What do I do?
Can I receive a recording of a past or upcoming workshop or class?
No. The only way to attend a workshop or Master Class is live.
Are scholarships available?
Is closed captioning available?
Yes. Otter.ai live notes are available for all Master Classes, and on a case-by-case basis for workshops. (If you are signed up for a workshop, please discuss closed captioning with your instructor.) To view the notes, look for the red LIVE dropdown menu in the top left of your Zoom screen and select View Stream on Otter.ai.
The Master Class or workshop I want to join is sold out. Is there a waitlist?
I signed up for a class but can't make it. Can I be refunded?
But I signed up for a class after the cut-off point for a full refund had passed. Can I still be eligible for a full refund?
No. Please be aware of our cancellation policy upon registration.
I'd like to transfer my registration to someone else. Is this possible?
If you need to cancel your enrollment in an Academy class, please let us know as soon as possible. We can only offer full refunds if you cancel two weeks prior to the start of class. After that, before the start date of class, we can offer a 50% refund. We cannot refund day-of cancellations, and we cannot refund or partially refund tuition once the class has begun.
