|About Last Summer at Barebones||
For all these years, you've wanted to write, but you haven't known how to get started. "Creative Writing -- Getting Started" is a six-week course designed to be done privately, on-line, to help you overcome all the mental and physical obstacles that have stood in the way of your creative writing efforts. Journalling, writing exercises, poetry and short stories/essays all form part of the workshop.
Also available, for more established or advanced writers: private one-on-one online workshopping of your novel-in-progress, memoir, short stories or creative non-fiction. Diane Baker Mason will act as your mentor for a six-week private workshop of your work-in-progress.
Here's what some of her students have said about Diane Baker Mason's "Creative Writing -- Getting Started":
Don't know how to thank you except to just say it
- THANK YOU! It's been a fun experience for me. Your gentle guidance throughout
this course not to mention your great sense of humour have given me the
confidence to carry on writing whatever comes to mind wherever, just for
the sheer joy of it.
I didn't track my hours. I was having far too much
fun to worry about stuff like that. The course surpassed my expectations.
Diane is a wonderful motivator and teacher. She's been there. She shares.
Even her critiques were motivating because she made you feel like you wanted
So soon it's over? Felt I learned quite a bit in
just a few classes. I've requested a Creative Writing Part 2!
I seriously cannot pick up a book without your name
popping into my mind. How many people have you had that effect on? What
do you mean, thousands?
This course exceeded my expectations. [I am interested
in taking additional online courses] if all of the faculty are as good
as this one.
Excellent format - really enjoyed this class, especially
instructor. Class was very well taught and I learned a lot about the writing
process and myself along the way. She does a great job!
Thank you very much for an inspiring and therapeutic
course! I really enjoyed it and it was great to have you as a leader.
I am definitely getting my money's worth!! Is there
anyone you want me to tell? Seriously, do you have a board that reviews
your work? Your commitment to your students? Gimme their names.
You have made me want to continue to write. I will
soon start another creative writing class, but I'm doubtful that the instructor
will be as warm or as dedicated...
