This advanced fiction course is suited for writers interested in developing their craft and bringing a draft of a short story or novel excerpt through a series of exercises and conversations and into fuller form. We’ll discuss the big ticket items like character, point of view, setting, voice, and narrative. But we’ll also focus on the student’s work to find a larger conversation about the nuances and smaller things that only arrive in the work itself. Students should expect a rigorous and lively day of conversation, reading, writing, and altogether deeply engaging though on the subject of fiction and how it works. All genres welcome, but the student should have some considerable practice writing fiction.

Class meets Wednesday, August 9, 9 am – 4 pm. Breaks will be scheduled. Individual consultations with the teaching artist will be scheduled for Thursday, August 10.

Class size: Maximum 12. Minimum 5.
