I occasionally teach writing workshops in Houston as well as online. Most of my classes are offered through Writespace, a local nonprofit literary arts organization, although I also teach through other organizations too.

The Craft of Fiction | Glasscock School of Continuing Studies Online | Mondays, March 1 - April 12, 16, 7 - 9 PM CDT
Telling stories has been a part of the human experience for as long as people have existed. But transforming stories into written works can be a daunting process. Using a blend of literary inspirations, generative writing exercises and in-depth discussions, novelist Cassandra Rose Clarke examines the basics of good fiction and offers insight into both the revision and publication processes. From developing characters and plot to structuring a story, this course guides you through the steps of crafting fiction. The workshop culminates with an opportunity to have your work critiqued. All fiction genres are welcome, from literary to mystery and speculative. This course is suitable for beginning and intermediate fiction writers.
I have over a decade's worth of experience teaching classes and workshops related to literature and writing (both creative and academic) and have worked with students of all ages. In addition to my work with Writespace, I have taught at two local community colleges (Houston Community College and Lonestar College) and led library workshops for junior high students and high school students.
As an educator, I believe students should be the focus of a classroom, not the teacher. I strive to ensure my students, regardless of their age and experience, are as involved as possible in the learning process.
