This workshop will offer guidance and encouragement for students who wish to explore or deepen their practice of fiction writing. We’ll study the craft—character, setting, plot, tension, dialogue, imagery—through close reading of short stories and novel excerpts. I’ll share tools for how to transform your ideas or experiences into stories that will resonate.Writers can expect to write to prompts and to share pieces prepared at home in a supportive atmosphere. I also provide weekly emails with extra prompts and resources. Whether you’re just starting out or looking for a weekly deadline to share your work-in-progress, this workshop is fluid and will cater to the group’s needs.
