Special Event

New! Studios

Charlotte Lit’s new Studios are 4-week immersions using multiple modes of teaching and learning that help you dive deeper into your craft. Here’s what you can expect:

• Deep content. Class content is delivered online, self-paced, in four weekly lessons. Each week you’ll participate in a mix of experiences, including video presentations, specially-selected craft articles, sample texts, group discussions with your classmates and teacher, and complete writing assignments—all on your own schedule.

• Instructor feedback. Best of all, you’ll receive in-depth written instructor feedback on one or more of your submissions (see the individual class descriptions for details)—the kind that enables you to move from rough draft to revision and toward a completed, polished piece of writing you can be proud of—and maybe even publish.

• Zoom sessions. Want live interaction, too? Each Studio also includes 2-4 optional Zoom sessions, where you can ask questions, have concepts further explained, and chat live with your teacher and classmates.

There are six Studios to choose from, and with just 12 seats in each you’ll want claim yours right away. Good news: until August 23, all Studios are discounted to $300 for Charlotte Lit members; and $375 for non-members (which includes a one-year General Membership).
