This is an in-person workshop that takes place at Inprint House.


This intensive is intended for the writer considering making even more room for their writing practice and wanting to get their fiction out into the world. We will build on fundamental elements of fiction––such as point of view, voice, characterization, form––while polishing a work of fiction through constructive feedback. Here, we welcome writers who have taken at least one fiction workshop at Inprint, or who have a solid understanding or background in creative writing. Note: manuscript submissions will be due for everyone on July 5th, or one week before the workshop meets.
