Generate five new stories in just six weeks with a class designed to kick your writing into gear. Each week we'll share our writing, find inspiration in published stories, and respond to in-class exercises to get going on the next piece. Throughout the class we'll discuss craft, experiment with new forms, play with language and story, and find out what sparks our process. All genres of fiction are welcome.
