Advanced Fiction Writing Workshop - June 2023

In this seminar-style class students will develop and refine their skills with writing short fiction. We’ll read published contemporary fiction, analyze craft elements and strategies for fiction-making, and practice writing both with short in-class prompts and in longer original stories be discussed in full-class workshops. Students will receive feedback on their work from their peers and the instructor. In this class, each student will have the chance to evolve creatively, and to participate in a community based on mutual respect and encouragement.
