Course Description

Are you interested in writing about paranormal phenomena or psychic experiences?

Whether writing about your own psychic experiences or those of others, in this course you'll go over some of the tools needed to share your thoughts and express ideas in ways that are accessible and interesting to others. These same skills are useful for writing fiction or fictionalized versions of your own experiences.

Class sessions will cover basic writing concepts such as purpose, audience, narrative voice, setting, imagery, dialogue, and style – but in parapsychological contexts, with examples focused on psi experiences. Through exercises and critiquing, you'll explore your own writing with the instructor and with other students. Each week you will provide a writing sample in an online forum and review your work in the online courseroom and in live class discussions.

This four-week course is Part I of a two-part course. Part II will involve longer or more involved written work, and it will be offered at a later date. You must take Part I to qualify to register for Part II, but you can also take Part I by itself. (Students taking this course to complete a certificate program must take both Part I & Part II.)

This class has limited enrollment to facilitate discussion and review.

When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.

Where: This is an ONLINE COURSE, so you can participate anywhere you have an internet connection.

Tuition: $130 ($110 for Rhine members)
