Crafting Fiction

Over eight weeks, this online workshop will introduce you to the art of writing fiction. We will focus
on craft elements such as character, point of view, plot, setting, and more. We will also discuss the
writing process and consider how our own processes might call for pliability depending on the form
of a given project (flash prose, short story, novel). We’ll read published stories each week, and you’ll
receive weekly writing prompts, which will help you generate new material. Everyone will have the
opportunity to workshop a story or an excerpt of a longer piece. Workshop submissions will receive
detailed feedback from the instructor. You’ll be expected to write outside of class and complete
assigned readings prior to each meeting. At the end of the course, you will have a deeper sense of
your voice and style, drafts on which you can continue to work, and the tools for approaching future
projects. This workshop is open to writers of all levels and backgrounds.
