An intensive 7-week class for writers whose imaginations need a kick in the ass. There will be a mixture of generative exercises and dives into elements of craft, with readings, assignments, games, and discussions designed to help you hone your process and improve your fiction. We’ll start out creating new story ideas before heading into deeper literary waters, so the course is suitable for everyone from total beginners to published novelists.

These sessions will focus on examining diverse contemporary literature beyond the white male literary canon, taking inspiration from the best queer/trans/BIPOC/female authors working today. Graduates from Jane’s class have gone on to attend funded MFAs at Iowa and Brown, publish in journals such as Electric Literature, Tin House and The New Yorker, sign with top-tier agents, and publish with major publishing houses—so if you want to figure out where to take your writing next, she can help you get there!
