Let’s demystify the craft of fiction writing!
By working through basic craft elements of fiction, participants will build a strong foundation for their writing—be it short stories or novels. This workshop will explore elements one at a time and ask participants to practice them through in-class exercises. Reading published fiction will also help us understand how writers regularly employ these elements. You’ll also begin to put the elements together as you start a story. You’ll leave the workshop with the tools you need to write wonderful, authentic fiction.
