How to bake a book:  Start with a big love of words, add a generous helping of Mary Carroll Moore, mix with leavening from your peers, knead vigorously for twelve weeks, and voila! Your book has risen!

—Eric Utne, founder of Utne Reader

Mary’s online course was an astonishing experience. I am awed by her brilliance, compassion, knowledge, and ability to lead a group. Even as an MFA faculty member, I have learned so much about the outstanding capabilities of online instruction and mentoring in creative writing. I recommend her highly.

—Teresa Cader, award-winning author of the poetry collections History of Hurricanes, The Paper Wasp, and Guests

Mary taught me to listen and to sense the movement or stasis of my own words. I learned to step outside myself and see if a section carried me or dragged behind me. At first I wanted to protect the leaden parts because I had poured myself into them. But once I pick-axed and the pace quickened, everything felt lighter and better—my work as well as me.

—Carrie Barron,M.D., co-author of The Creativity Cure

Collaging my novel—one of Mary’s many novel ideas!—helped me to excavate

themes of my story that were buried deep in my unconscious and to get a clearer picture (literally as well as figuratively) of my protagonist.

—Prill Boyle, author of Defying Gravity: A Celebration of Late-Blooming Women

Mary’s guidance on structure gave me the practical tools to write my book proposal and, more importantly, a deeper understanding of my book.  She is engaging, encouraging, and really knows her stuff.  I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help putting shape to their ideas.

—Katherine Ozment, author of Grace without God:  The Search for Meaning, Purpose, and Belonging in a Secular Age (Publisher’s Weekly Best Books, 2016)

At the Loft Literary Center, I can always tell which students in my classes have taken Mary Carroll Moore’s class on book-writing. They talk about writing their book in "islands" and using storyboards to figure out how those sections relate to each other. When another student confesses to feeling overwhelmed by the material her memoir might include, they readily advise, “You should try Mary Carroll Moore’s method.” I second that.

—Cheri Register, American Book Award winner and author of Packinghouse Daughter

 

With storyboards, collages, image-based writing exercises, and charts, Mary Carroll Moore shows writers how to really see their writing in a new way. Her book-structuring method teaches them to zoom out from the detail level of sentences to see the big picture of the entire book. This ability to control focus—

from words and sentences, to scenes and chapters, to the wide angle of themes and flow—is crucial. Your Book Starts Here is a valuable resource in developing this skill. —Roseanne Bane, creativity coach and author, Dancing in the Dragon’s Den: Rekindling the Creative Fire in Your Shadow

Fall Online classes

Story in Progress:  A Workshopping Class for Fiction or Memoir Writers

Intermediate and advanced fiction and memoir writers will gather to

serve up their first pages, opening chapter, and random selections of

their project, short or long, exposing not-quite-working-yet characters,

dialogue, setting, for workshopping and fixing. The goal is to leave

you with ah-ha! moments about what to do next and renewed excitement in

your writing. Eight week online class sponsored by the Loft Literary Center (www.loft.org). Starts October 24. $390.

The Art of Voice and Theme in Fiction and Memoir

Every writer craves an authentic voice and strong themes—two key

elements that make writing stand out. Both voice and theme reveal

emotional truth, linking writer and reader in a personal way. But how

does a writer identify her or his unique voice, develop it, and use it

to craft themes that matter? Through weekly readings, writing exercises, and

feedback, we’ll learn the difference between narrative voice and

character voice, how themes emerge in a piece of fiction or memoir, ways

to thread these themes for greatest impact, and how voice and theme

weave together. Eight week online class sponsored by the Loft Literary Center (www.loft.org). Starts October 24. $390.

Fall in-person workshop

Writing Authentic, Amazing Dialogue for Your Fiction and Memoir:  An Afternoon Intensive

Dialogue makes or breaks your fiction and memoir. Although some writers

have a natural ear for writing authentic-sounding dialogue, most have to

learn the technique: how to translate spoken dialogue (real life) to

the page, bring in enough subtext to create tension, find voice and

rhythm, and carefully employ tags and interruptions and stage

directions. We’ll analyze amazing dialogue by famous writers, then craft

or refine our own using modeling techniques, weekly assignments, lively

discussion, and feedback. Dialogue isn’t easy, but once you learn the

rules, develop your ear, and attune to dialogue’s rhythms, you can write

amazing, authentic dialogue for your fiction or memoir.

The Loft Literary Center, Minneapolis, Thursday, October 25, 12:00- 5:)0 p.m., $87.50

Past Classes—will be offered again!

Writing Your Life: How to Plan, Write, and Develop Your Memoir

Whether you are trying to write the story of your life for

publication or as a family legacy, this class by the author of two

memoirs will show you how to organize your stories into a readable,

interesting work. You will be introduced to a simple formula that

successful authors use to find the central conflict in their story, then

plan, organize, and write scenes and chapters around it.

We’ll explore essential book-writing techniques such as the value of

themes, how action and reflection balance one another in memoir and

creative nonfiction, and the author’s voice versus the narrative voice.

Bring a few rough-draft pages from your memoir to work on during the

exercises, if you wish, or any notes you have so far.

 

Afternoon Character Intensive

Characters are the heartbeat of story—whether imagined or real, they must come alive on the page.

Author Marilynne Robinson says that great characters create an almost “emotional entanglement” with a reader.

But how do you, as a writer, work with characters? What if they are too mysterious or bore you? What if you can’t

imagine how to bring them to life? This afternoon class will let you audition the most compelling cast for your

fiction or memoir, then free them from any conscious or unconscious paralysis (safe, stuck places), via in-class exercises,

craft lessons, and sample reading. We’ll explore key character-building skills such as longing and desire, external

and internal motivation, physical appearance, community, values, secrets, backstory, gestures, and more.

You’ll begin to write characters who will last in your reader’s memory and attract publishers. For memoir or

fiction writers at any stage. Bring a bag lunch or get lunch before class from the cafe downstairs.

Strange Alchemy:  How Place, People, and Conflict Intertwine in Fiction and Memoir—online class

Good story engages readers because place, people, and conflict are not

haphazard. They are aligned to create a certain alchemy. In this class

you’ll learn how the three elements of place, people, and conflict must

work together to make memoir and fiction writing come alive. Enough dilemma—or too much? Power positions of players working—or not? Does setting lend emotion—or is it flat? 24/7 access to classroom, weekly lessons and exercises, lots of feedback.

Your Book Starts Here, Part 3—online class

This class is open to writers with a complete draft of a manuscript in any genre, at any stage, who feel ready for revision (instructor OK required if you haven’t attended storyboarding workshop or class). Small workshopping groups help you learn the art of revision with two rounds of feedback on your chapters each week. Lessons include the techniques of pacing, voice, and theme, plus up-to-date publishing information. This a graduate-school-level workshopping environment can help you refine your book chapter by chapter. Weekly feedback from Mary plus private coaching via a drop box. Note: you must have a completed draft to qualify for this class.

 

Your Book Starts Here, Learn to Storyboard Your Book!—online class

An eight-week tutorial on storyboarding your book in any genre. Explore your book idea and its structure. Strengthen your writing practice with weekly accountability. Learn about the Inner Critic and develop a brainstorming list of topics to avoid being flattened by it. Weekly lessons include chapters from Your Book Starts Here and other material, along with in-depth writing exercises. Our lively online writing community gives you a safe space to share your work and get constructive and inspiring feedback from classmates and Mary.

Rule of Three:  Character, Conflict, and Your Story’s Container

A fast-paced, hands-on workshop to explore how to refine the three main elements of your fiction or creative nonfiction writing:  the people that populate it, the dilemma they create that drives the story forward, and the container, or setting that encloses it all. Get new perspectives on your work and a toolbox full of techniques for preparing your manuscript for publication.

Writer’s Wheel of Ten:  Upgrade Your Craft Skills in Fiction and Memoir

Spend a lively day exploring

the ins and outs of ten essential writing tools professional

writers never leave home without. Bring new

vibrancy to a not-quite-there-yet memoir, short story, or novel. Fun

exercises, short readings, discussion will help us see new

levels of these basic tools–and how they improve your writing.

Dialogue Skills to Bring Characters to Life

Writing great dialogue is hard! Learn simple techniques to take your real-life and fictional dialogue to a new level of shine.

Fascinating and Flawed:  Creating Vivid Characters in Fiction and Memoir

An eight-week online class to explore and refine characters. Characters are the heartbeat of story—whether imagined or real, they must come alive on the page. Author Marilynne Robinson says that great characters create an almost "emotional entanglement" with a reader. But how do you, as a writer, work with characters?  What if they are too mysterious or bore you?  What if you can’t imagine how to bring them to life?  This online class will let you audition the most compelling cast for your fiction or memoir, then free them from any conscious or unconscious paralysis (safe, stuck places), via readings, discussion, and innovative exercises.  We’ll explore key character-building skills such as longing and desire, external and internal motivation, physical appearance, community, values, secrets, backstory, gestures, and more.  You’ll leave knowing how to write characters who will last in your reader’s memory and attract publishers.  For memoir or fiction writers at any stage.

    Overview
    Status: Available | Released: Dec 12th, 2013
    Did you know that almost every film, commercial and some websites start out with a storyboard? It’s true and that’s why the storyboard artist is in such high demand! The fact is, anything that tells a story can be storyboarded… and there is no better way to initially visualize a production than to create a storyboard. That’s why almost every major film and TV show starts out as stick figures in frames!

    In this course, designed by storyboard artist Siobhan Twomey, you learn everything you need to know to get started in this intensely creative profession. From basic concepts to more advanced drawing techniques, you get it all. You learn about the different types of storyboards and the basics of visual language. Siobhan then demonstrates the power of perspective and shot composition to add drama to a frame.

    Next up are some great tutorials on drawing techniques where you learn how to draw simple, yet emotive characters that effectively show the feelings of the story with just a couple of strokes of the pen!

    So sit back and watch as Siobhan “draws” you into her world and creates awesome storyboards right before your eyes!

      This is my first contact with storyboarding, and it was a pleasure to watch and learn, great tips on transmitting emotions thru images, and even learning how to do basic drawings. Very cool.

    • Genkai wrote on October 27, 2014
      I don’t draw but I am fascinated with film and this is really my first tutorial that has to do with the language of story telling. This vid does a great job at clearly explaining technique and terminology in animation and film. I also enjoyed the tips on what kind of shots worked best in dramatic scenes and which ones work best for comedic and so on. Lastly, I love the talk about the Golden Ratio and also that out of the 30 or so tutorials i have from MacPro, this is the first I have owned with a woman conducting the lesson which is always nice to break away from the standard which of course is men. Oh one more thing, I will definitely buy the other storyboard tutorial/vid and I hope they both end up under the Filmmaking tab in the Genre Browse as well as where they are now. I would hate for anyone to not know that these exist because they are not in their other proper home. thanks again.

      Excellent course. Good delivery of content and relevant information. Could’ve used a bit more on the mechanics of getting storyboarding into the computer such as use of Photoshop, Templates, layers, etc. but that might be another course in itself.

      This course really gets to the heart of what you will need to master to acquire the skills required for storyboarding . It also takes out any anxiety you may have about your own ability to storyboard successfully.

      Overview
      Status: Available | Released: Dec 12th, 2013
      Did you know that almost every film, commercial and some websites start out with a storyboard? It’s true and that’s why the storyboard artist is in such high demand! The fact is, anything that tells a story can be storyboarded… and there is no better way to initially visualize a production than to create a storyboard. That’s why almost every major film and TV show starts out as stick figures in frames!

      In this course, designed by storyboard artist Siobhan Twomey, you learn everything you need to know to get started in this intensely creative profession. From basic concepts to more advanced drawing techniques, you get it all. You learn about the different types of storyboards and the basics of visual language. Siobhan then demonstrates the power of perspective and shot composition to add drama to a frame.

      Next up are some great tutorials on drawing techniques where you learn how to draw simple, yet emotive characters that effectively show the feelings of the story with just a couple of strokes of the pen!

      So sit back and watch as Siobhan “draws” you into her world and creates awesome storyboards right before your eyes!

        This is my first contact with storyboarding, and it was a pleasure to watch and learn, great tips on transmitting emotions thru images, and even learning how to do basic drawings. Very cool.

        I don’t draw but I am fascinated with film and this is really my first tutorial that has to do with the language of story telling. This vid does a great job at clearly explaining technique and terminology in animation and film. I also enjoyed the tips on what kind of shots worked best in dramatic scenes and which ones work best for comedic and so on. Lastly, I love the talk about the Golden Ratio and also that out of the 30 or so tutorials i have from MacPro, this is the first I have owned with a woman conducting the lesson which is always nice to break away from the standard which of course is men. Oh one more thing, I will definitely buy the other storyboard tutorial/vid and I hope they both end up under the Filmmaking tab in the Genre Browse as well as where they are now. I would hate for anyone to not know that these exist because they are not in their other proper home. thanks again.

        This is an amazing tutorial, I used to think I needed days of training to learn about storyboarding. But this really helped me a lot to compliment my video editing learning, and it’s only about an hour long.

        Excellent course. Good delivery of content and relevant information. Could’ve used a bit more on the mechanics of getting storyboarding into the computer such as use of Photoshop, Templates, layers, etc. but that might be another course in itself.

        This course really gets to the heart of what you will need to master to acquire the skills required for storyboarding . It also takes out any anxiety you may have about your own ability to storyboard successfully.

        Great course. Short, succinct and to the point. Gave me an excellent intro into the why’s and the how’s of storyboarding.
        Watched it all in one sitting.
