The Fall 2024 BOOT CAMP begins Monday, September 9, 2024

Space is very limited so sign up now.

OUTLIERS WRITING BOOT CAMP is a mentored 6-Class, 12-week, small-group intensive program that focuses on the student’s work-in-progress. The student and mentor will collaborate to enhance, edit, and polish the writing while imparting techniques that will carry the author through the entire story, and beyond.


Does your premise and inciting incident capture the reader?

Is your story structure sound?

Are your characters three-dimensional or flat on the page?

Does your chosen Point of View strengthen your story?

Are your verbs active and does the pacing fit the story?

Does your dialog ring true?

Does your setting fit and enhance the story?


You will work with your mentor to address these and other concerns with the goal of making your story the best it can be and ultimately attracting an agent, an editor, and a loyal fan base.


How does it work?


1-Boot Camp will be six 2-hour sessions over 12 weeks


2-The sessions will be interactive ZOOM events on every other Monday at 4 p.m. Pacific time.


3-Class size limited to a maximum of five students.


4-Three weeks prior to beginning the course, students must submit a 10-page double-spaced sample of their story for evaluation. This will help us determine your current achievement level and match you with the mentor that best fits your needs. These pages will be evaluated and critiqued during the first session.


5—Students will submit up to 10 double-spaced pages 1 week prior to each class. These can be the same pages as a previous session for further work, or new pages for evaluation and improvement. These pages can make up the first 60 pages of your story, or any 10-page segments you want evaluated. 




The six-week course is a single payment of $1000

NOTE: Payment and the first 10 pages must be submitted at least 3 weeks prior to the class start date of 9-9-24.
