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

This workshop is full, please sign up on the waiting list here so you receive priority registration the next time this class is offered.

How do we write stories that not only hook a reader in the first couple of paragraphs, but also capture attention in the first sentence? How do we create characters that do more than just feel realistic, but have real breath in their lungs? How do we move beyond a point of view, and inhabit the story itself? How can we take prose, and let the story come alive with its own unique voice? In this course we will be pumping fiction full of vitamins, minerals, and–maybe even–steroids through discussions, exercises, workshopping original pieces, and reading short stories by canonized and emerging authors.
