A writing sample is not necessary to apply for this workshop but welcome. Please fill out an application with name, contact info, and writing/writing class experience.
In this workshop, writers will learn how to manipulate the tools of fiction-writing (point-of-view, plot, characterizing detail, tone, etc.) to craft complete and unique stories that engage the reader. In-class critiques and exercises, as well as lectures and feedback from the instructor, are used to help students further develop their writing. This course is intended for writers with some writing experience who are looking to learn more about what makes a story, “a story.”
A private conference with the instructor is included.
