Scarlett O’Hara travels back to 1984 and swap clothes with Tyrion Lannister. Dostojevski’s idiot is confined in a cellar under an African farm, while Jussi Adler-Olsen clean after Of Mice and Men in Slaughterhouse-Five.

Fantasy knows no boundaries, and in Writers Class it is your voice and your imagination which is important. Maybe you have been writing for years, maybe you just started.

Maybe you like to write romance, crime or sci-fi. Maybe there is a novel in you; maybe it is poems, short prose or something else. Maybe you don’t write yet, because you don’t know how to get started.

On Writers Class we don’t worry about punctuations; if you want to, you can place them all on the last page, and let the reader place them.
In Writers Class you will create your own stories. We read everybody’s texts and give our critique. I and the team will help your voice to soar. Eventually it will be ready to fly to a large audience. Such an audience is fortunately ready available: in the joint arrangements here at the high school, the Writers Class will read out loud from own creations. That’s a big move, and I hope you have the stomach for it. Hence that, we will practice rhetoric and reading out loud.

We write in length, we write short, we write in measured time and out in the open. There will be assignments, free subjects and time for in depth writing and discussion. And time to sit very still in your own world, accompanied with the writer you love the most.
