A word from Kevin Jacobsen

This 5-week 1st Level & Advanced Level Method Writing class will take you through the First Four Concepts of Method Writing, and Advanced Level Method Writing using The Jack Grapes Method Writing books. This unique and ground breaking approach to the creative process will get in touch with your true inner being. You will write in an authentic way, sounding like yourself, and not like a fancy writer —  it’s what all good writers and artists strive for — we call it VOICE, and writing LIKE YOU TALK. Then we will teach you a technique on how to take that voice even deeper. Because it’s the voice that hooks the reader, then the voice creates character, and then characters create story and plot. Then when the reader is hooked, we will teach you how to create cinematic moments in your prose writing by mastering the specific mechanics of the “Image Moment” concept. And it that’s not enough, we will rattle your brain with the “Dreaded” Association Exercise. That’s where the true accidents of your genius pop up. We will show you how the Jack Grapes’s Method Writing technique really works, how it will improve your writing and make you stand out in a crowd, as an artist, as a writer, and as a human being. You will come from “process”  instead of writing toward a specific “product,” you will open yourself up to the accidental detours of your inner truth. Then in Advanced Level Method Writing you will begin to learn how to manipulate the voice. You will come to trust process and that process actually creates product. When you’re “in the moment” in your writing, you’re also open to the unexpected ideas and stories that come from your deepest self. As Robert Frost said, “No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.”
