Advanced-level classes are for writers with significant writing experience who wish to delve deeper into the craft of writing and/or would like feedback and assistance with the revision of a rough draft. Advanced classes are hands-on and require a deeper level of commitment and participation than you might find in other classes.
Intermediate-level classes build on skills developed in Emerging level courses. You should have a reasonable understanding of the basics of writing craft and writing terms (e.g., point of view, voice, rhythm, alliteration) and some experience and/or comfort level in sharing your work in a group setting. This level is ideal for writers who already have a personal writing project(s) in progress.
Emerging Writer classes are designed for those with little or no experience in a writing class or workshop setting but want to expand their knowledge of the building blocks of writing. These classes are also a great transition for experienced writers who may be delving into an unfamiliar genre.
Unless otherwise noted, most of Literary Cleveland’s classes are designed to be helpful to writers at all levels of experience.
