Boot Course (Drafting and Story Structure)—An in-depth master class on story, for beginning and advanced fiction writers. You’ll receive a story consultation from Lara (we brainstorm and troubleshoot your story), workshop your story with classmates (optional), and walk away with a first draft (or detailed outline, if you have time to plan but not to write).

* A “Boot” is someone fresh out of basic training.
