Please note that this is an online workshop conducted via Zoom. Participants will be provided information on how to join the online sessions.
During this six week workshop we will introduce you to the art of crafting fiction. We’ll focus on topics such as character, point-of-view, setting, dialogue, traditional vs. nontraditional narrative forms, and more. To inspire the ways we can apply different techniques to our own work, we’ll read one or two published stories per week. You’ll receive weekly writing prompts, which will highlight specific elements of craft and, hopefully, will result in full story drafts. You’ll be encouraged to write outside of class and complete assigned readings prior to each meeting. You will have at least one story workshopped by the group. Stories submitted for workshop will receive detailed feedback from the instructor. At the end of the course, you will have a better sense of your voice and style, stories on which you can continue to work, and the tools to approach future writing projects.
