with Chris Belden


This is a craft-focused workshop geared to the advanced fiction writer. By “advanced,” we mean writers who have had workshop experience and are currently at work on a novel or short stories. Workshop time is spent sharing and discussing participants’ material in a respectful and constructive atmosphere intended to elevate the caliber of the work. We will go deeply into the more challenging aspects of fiction writing, such as story structure, plot, pacing, and dialogue. This workshop is most appropriate for writers of adult literary fiction.


This class is open for registration by permission of the instructor only.  A short manuscript submission is required.  Please contact our office if you are interested in registering.


Manuscript Course: In addition to bringing in five pages per week to read aloud to the class for discussion, each student will have one opportunity to submit up to fifteen double-spaced pages to the instructor and class members. The group will read the work at home, write constructive comments on the pages, and provide feedback to the manuscript in class.

Online via ZOOM
