This advanced workshop aims to inspire writers to create their best short and long-form fiction through instruction, analysis, critique and practice. We explore all craft elements in depth, from audience and backstory to theme, tone and voice. Our critique method emphasizes analysis of each writer’s work to discover which elements achieve the writer’s purpose, or not, and why. The workshop is suitable for writers of literary and genre fiction, for publication and personal exploration. The workshop also examines the art of revision, and each writer can submit up to five pages weekly to the group and instructor, and a manuscript submission of 15 pages once during the series. Writers also share their goals and aspirations, and can contact the instructor with questions throughout the series.
Manuscript Course: Besides submitting five pages per week to read aloud for discussion, each writer will have one opportunity to submit up to fifteen double-spaced pages. The group and instructor will read the work in advance and offer constructive comments and feedback in workshop.
A writing sample of 250 words maximum is required for entrance to this workshop.
