Courses for creative writing in the Bay Area?
You will take creative writing from good (often published) authors, and they are also often outstanding, dedicated masters. I have attended some courses at Stanford, and while the student qualities vary, they can be very high, which means that your Peergroup will be high. A recent teacher I would suggest is Malena Watrous.
I like the in-person courses, but the on-line courses can be comfortable if you don't have the luxury of going to Stanford and spending three lessons there once a week, but you have the opportunity to communicate with the teacher and other people. While I know CCA also provides writing classes and some former Stanford/Stegner people teach there, I'm not sure if you need to be a full-time alumni to inscribe.
I' d like to mention that the Writers' Grotto in San Francisco is offering courses: http://www.sfgrotto.org/classes..... This is what I learnt from the KQED Promise Campaign, where a grotto is one of the donations. When you' re looking for classes in San Francisco, I run an award-winning writing college in LA and online named Writing Pad, which opens an SF site in Potrero Hill in September this year.
Courses in screenplay design with Chris Reed (The Lion King), personal essay with Mark Lukach (NY Times Modern Love), solo show with Jill Vice (Best of SF Fringe 2013) and story-telling with Josh Healey (Snap Judgement). Here is the direct connection to our latest offer: CR CRYPAD SF CLASSES BY DATE.
Compiled by Writing Pad - Arts District - Los Angeles, CA and SF here: Notepad - Potrero Hill - San Francisco, CA. I attended several courses at The Writing Salon (http://www.writingsalons.com/), in SF, Berkeley and on-line in a round robot every single working days (writing every single working days, reading a play, getting feedback). The teachers were all first class and gave really great feedbacks.
A bonus to SF lessons: walk to Humphry Slocombe. He has one of the best creative writing software ever. You are offering courses on-line and this can be taken as an advanced training.
