Learn to address common mistakes in representing people’s views of the cosmos and how they see their place in it. We all wonder, we all speculate, we all want to understand.  Here’s how to show that common thread in the thoughts of those with very different takes on these essentially human questions and answers.

What Are Master Classes?

Seminars designed as a deep dive into a specific Writing the Other topic. While the online classes, Weekend Intensives, and Classic seminars provide a good foundation, the Master Classes go beyond the basics and allow writers to learn from and ask questions of experts in specific areas.

Who Should Take These Classes?

These seminars are available to any writer, but they assume some familiarity with the basics of the concepts found in the Writing the Other: A Practical Approach book. If you have not attended a Weekend Intensive or other course, retreat, or workshop, you can still take a Master Class as long as you have read the book and familiarize yourself with the material on the Resources page before class. (We suggest reading Invisible and Invisible 2 plus the links at the bottom of the page.) This will give you enough foundation for this Master Class.

These seminars are designed to be particularly beneficial for writers who’ve taken one of our foundational classes.
