In 2012, Brandon Sanderson of Mistborn fame taught a novel-writing class at BYU in Provo, Utah. I almost had a seizure when I found out, because I live like half an hour from Provo and I totally could have attended.
However, the entire semester was filmed and posted to this website, for all of us poor shmucks who couldn’t sign up fast enough.
I would seriously recommend that anyone who currently is, or wants to be, a writer should watch every video and take extensive notes. Brandon covers the heart and soul of storytelling. I learned so much from this series of videos. I’m about to watch them over again.
