This workshop is geared to the previously “intermediate” writer who is ready to move on to the next level in the process of fiction writing. Each week, participants will share a brief excerpt from an ongoing novel or short story project, and the instructor will lead a constructive discussion of the manuscript, highlighting its positive aspects and gently exploring ways to improve it.
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.
